Medic is excited to announce the latest release of the Community Health Toolkit (CHT) with exciting new features and many improvements.
The UI framework has been upgraded from the deprecated AngularJS v1.6 to Angular v10.0 which drastically reduces the memory used on the phone. It will make development of the Core Framework easier and more reliable and also makes it easier to keep on the latest version of Angular which means we can keep up to date and on a supported version from now on.
RapidPro SMS gateway
SMS messages can now be sent and received using a RapidPro instance. This allows for integration with a wide range of SMS aggregators for a high scale SMS deployment. Learn more in the feature documentation.
Improved replication performance
API CPU usage has been significantly improved when requesting the changes feed, which is a frequently requested endpoint for smartphone applications.
Added a GitHub Action for deploying configuration
If you wish to automate configuration deployment you can now use our GitHub Action as a building block.
