TinaCMS Version 1.5.9

June 13, 2023

By James O'Halloran

Today we are excited to release tinacms@1.5.9 and @tinacms/clil@1.5.18. The full list of changes can be found in the changeset PR.

Improved Search

It's now easier than ever to find your documents in TinaCMS. TinaCMS's search was previously limited to filtering on specific fields, search was case-sensitive, and it was difficult for editors to use without knowing the exact value of a field. Now editors can search for documents across any of its fields. 

Setting up search does require some light configuration to be enabled. Learn more about setting up search in the docs.

Recent Updates

Since our last changelog post, there's been several improvements to Tina

Media Syncing

When repo-based media is setup on a project, we need to trigger an initial sync on the project's configured asset directory. This was previously done in the CMS' media-manager, but its UX caused some confusion. It was also a bit black-box in terms of which branch was being used as the media source-of-truth.

We've since added a "Media" tab to the Tina Cloud dashboard to improve this experience.

When new projects are setup, Tina media can be enabled from this tab.
We plan on adding configuration to this tab in the future, and we hope it improves the initial media setup in the meantime.


We recently announced some improvements to Visual Editing with our new "Click to Edit" functionality.
