Here's a recap of the features and improvements we shipped in May.


The team have been working on some fancypants code that syncs Modulz across tabs. We have no immediate plans to flesh this out, but we now have a solid foundation for all sorts of cool things, including multiplayer.

CodeSandbox integration

Until now you could just export individual React components. Now, you can export entire screens. We've also integrated CodeSandbox, so you can publish directly to CodeSandbox from Modulz.

Border panel redesign

We've updated the border panel to make it more functional and a bit fancier.

Image fill

A couple months ago we introduced the Image component. Now you can set an image as a background fill and take advantage of cool tricks like positioning and repeating.
