In the upcoming months, the Catalog team is excited to work on a few Catalog improvements. We are considering such projects that don’t require massive engineering effort, but that address real customer pain points in the product. You can find the list of potential projects below. Please let us know what you think of these improvement ideas and leave a comment on how helpful they would be for your institution.

Welcome to 2020. I hope everyone had a fun, relaxing holiday break. This time of year always provides an opportunity to reflect back on what the previous year shaped up to be, as well as look ahead to what the new year might bring. I thought I’d take a few minutes to do something similar for Catalog.

We're excited to be working on an all-new version of the listing and program create/edit page. As with all of our UI rewrites, our goal is to be streamlining the design and leveraging our awesome library of InstructureUI components.

I'm excited to announce that we have created a beta environment for Catalog for our Canadian customers. It went online on Monday, April 22nd. We're working hard to stand up other beta environments internationally, and our goal is to have a beta environment in every region where Catalog is available by the end of May. This will allow all of our Catalog customers to preview and test new features before they move to our production environments. As a reminder, beta environments are refreshed every 3 weeks in lockstep with our deploys.

The front end of Catalog was constructed mostly in a JavaScript (JS) framework called Ember that was popular around the time Catalog was originally being built. Ember has some inherent downsides that can make it difficult for our engineers to work with, and we would like to eventually move Catalog over to a more modern framework called React. This will happen over time.
