✨ New features#

🤖 Spawnctl#

⌛ Data container lifetimes!#

When creating a data container it is now possible to specify how long the container should live for, before being automatically deleted. See the docs for the new feature Create data-container and Update data-container.

👥 Organisations#

See all the members of your organisation with the new spawnctl get organisation command. This lets you see exactly who has access to Spawn in your organisation.

❌ Just show me the logs#

When data image creation fails, did you know that you can run spawnctl logs data-image to see why? We’ve made this more discoverable by suggesting it whenever an image creation attempt fails. There is also an analogous spawnctl logs data-container command to see the database engine logs for your data containers.

🖖 Aliases#

We’ve added some aliases for the get/create/delete data-container/data-image commands. You can now use di or dc instead of data-image and data-container.

🔐 No more copy/paste of security codes#

spawnctl now authenticates using the Device Authorization Grant, which means you don’t have to copy/paste a code from the browser anymore. Just log into the browser window, and spawnctl will detect you’ve authenticated.

📡 Spawn service#

  • 🕰 We’ve made some cluster improvements, meaning more consistent startup times for data containers.
