Card layout

We’re excited to launch our third ever layout type for views. It’s called Card layout.

Card layout is great for data that revolves around images, like users, companies, and products. It shows each record as a card with a prominent image and any other important info that you choose to be visible.

We think that card layout fits in nicely with our other two layouts, table and list, in letting you build the perfect admin dashboard for your data.

Try it out by creating a view and selecting “Card” as the layout. You can get an image to show up by clicking an image URL attribute in the view settings sidebar, and setting “display as” to image.

List layout images

Like with Card layout, you can also now show images in your list layouts. They’ll show up in the list so you can easily identify records based on their image.

Page descriptions

We also added quick descriptions to each top-level page to describe how each primitive in Basedash works. You can jump straight to the docs page for each page, and see quick video tutorials on how to do basic tasks.
