V1 of Wails is now in feature freeze. V2 is now in Beta for all platforms

Wails v1.8.0

A huge thank you to the following people for this release:


  • The big new feature is Sync Stores - a solution for state synchronisation between JS and Go. The JS runtime package @wailsapp/runtime has been updated to support stores. Thanks to jasonfran for input on this also.

  • New Template: Finally we are supporting the awesome Svelte (un)framework! Huge thanks to Tim Kipp for this contribution! Tim has also updated the React template!

  • wails build now supports custom ldflags. Use wails build -ldflags to pass them to the compiler.

New Distribution Support
