As the team size grew 20 to 40 in Frappe, the time it took to complete the Open Day increased drastically. 1 day was not enough to accomodate presentations of 40 people. So it was split into 2 and sometimes 3 days. Often people would get exhausted by the end of the day.

This time we decided to do alternate Open Day's every month for Developers and Consultants/Writers/Sales/Non-Dev team. So here is the summary of Developer Open Day for the month of July.


  • Ability to Bulk Restore deleted documents.
  • New convenience APIs added for adding and removing tags.

    doc.add_tag / doc.remove_tag described in documentation.

  • Enhancements to make bench build work with limited amount of RAM. Check out the PR.

  • New Site Command bench --site [sitename] ngrok to create a publicly hosted URL of your site, useful for debugging integrations and webhooks. Check out the PR.

  • Prepared Report enhancements.

  • PR in the works to set default Email Template per DocType.
  • Frappe Logger was refactored to add more structure. Learn more at Frappe Logging Docs.

Beautiful read, and an insight into an individual I respect and have learned a lot from. Am inspired to trust the process and never give up.

I must say this is a really amazing post, and for some of my friends who provide Best British Assignment Help, I must recommend this post to them.
