Flow 3.0

Total.js Flow v3.0

Today I'm very happy to announce that I have published a new release of Total.js Flow. This version brings a lot of new features, improvements and new components. Total.js Flow is a really great tool for everyone.

Multiple inputs

The big change in this version is the support of multiple inputs. The inputs can be changed dynamically in any component.

Multiple inputs

Message identificator

Each received data are wrapped into messages and each message has its own identificator stored in variable. ID is generated by Flow message counter, the counter is incremented if new instance of FlowMessage is created and not sent.

Message Counter

Added global variables

Variables can contain different values. The syntax is same as Total.js configuration/resource file.
