Last week we released Simplifier 29.4. This release was focused on fixing customer support requests and issues.

A vastly improved IG editor.

  • The layout of the IG editor has been cleaned up.
  • You can now switch between pages and files view.
  • Users now have more control over meta data and the configuration files behind the rendering.
  • A configuration menu was added.
  • We have simplified and improved drag and drop.
  • Added a page dropdown menu.

'Invisible' pages in your guide

You can now add pages to your implementation guide that are not visible from a menu or an index. You can use the editor to do that, or you can simply remove the page from the toc.yaml in the same folder.

PlantUML directly in your pages

You can now write Plant UML scripts in an ImplementationGuide page that will automatically render. You can insert PlantUml between a <plantuml> and </plantuml> tag write and maintain it directly within a Markdown page. For examples on how to use plantuml itself, see our playground: https://simplifier.net/plantuml

Allow FQL embed via html tags.

To be consistent and make it easy to add new languages and syntaxes, we now have an HTML tag for every kind. For now these two: <fql> and <plantuml>.


Every month we get hundreds of spam accounts. We have added captcha to our sign up form for a limited group of users that match a possible-spam signature.

  • Deleting a legacy guide used to get stuck
  • Organizations that have a dash in the name are now also found in search
