Kreya 1.12 - What's New


Kreya 1.12 has been released! This new version comes with a lot of new features and some bug fixes. Starting with a new dialog for unimported operations that is visible after an import run. If you ever wanted to see how long a request takes on the wire and server side, this is now possible with the new Timing tab. And for REST, we now support server-sent events.

Unimported operations dialog

Sometimes an operation is no longer imported (e.g. a method was removed from the gRPC API) and can be deleted. After the importers are run a warning is shown if unimported operations exist in the project. With the dialog you can delete the operations or ignore the warning.

Proto definition before change:

service Greeter {
rpc SayHello (HelloRequest) returns (HelloReply);
rpc SayBye (ByeRequest) returns (ByeReply);

Proto definition after change:

service Greeter {
rpc SayHello (HelloRequest) returns (HelloReply);

Operation and server timing Pro / Enterprise

You may be familiar with some timing diagrams from your browser's development tools. Timing details from requests are now also visible in Kreya, just select the Timing tab to view these details.

The tab is divided into two parts. In the first part you can see the general timing with DNS resolution and so on. And below you will see the details of the server timing, if you had configured it on your server.

Server-sent events

Kreya now supports server-sent events, allowing a server to stream events to Kreya. Server-sent events work almost like websockets on the client side, but you can't send events from the client to the server. More information about server-sent events.

Specify the HTTP version for REST operations

In Kreya it's possible to specify the HTTP version for a REST operation. This can be done in the Settings tab. Kreya has support for HTTP/1.1, HTTP/2 and HTTP/3.
