Platform Releases

Datagrok 2020.03.13 has just been released. This updates contains mostly bug fixes and improvements, see release notes for details.

We have just released a new version of the Datagrok platform (2020.03.30). As usually, it contains many fixes and improvements, however the central theme of the release is a redesigned file manager.

While the data often comes from databases, being able to efficiently working with files remains a critical capability. We are committed to providing the best possible experience for working with files, no matter whether they reside on a Windows share, NAS, S3, or elsewhere. By taking advantage of our technology, we have built a system that combines the best features from file manager, exploratory data analysis system, a search engine, an enterprise content management system, and a distributed computation platform. It is secure, indexable, searchable, supports metadata, and is integrated with the extensible mechanism for file viewers and editors. We have also introduced a special “file” data to our scripting engine that allows to write file processors in any language, such as R or Python, and seamlessly integrate it with Datagrok. See the related discussion here:

Another notable improvement is the much improved internal mechanism for working with databases, allowing us to process database batch requests 10x faster. This has a big impact on many tasks, such as deploying code repositories, or setting metadata for thousands of objects at once.

See release notes for the complete list of addressed issues.


Datagrok 2020.4.8 has arrived! For a long time, we’ve been busy harmonizing and simplifying Datagrok’s UI to make it a lot more intuitive, especially for the end users. Today’s release is the first one with the new UI turned on by default. It is designed to address the following:

  • Know where you are, and how to get here, by just looking at the screen
  • Make common entry points (queries, files, recent) more prominent
  • Easily discover platform capabilities
  • Easily extend the UI with external functionality
  • Save as much vertical space as possible

Release notes:


Datagrok v2020.05.06 has just been released. This version’s main feature is the the ability to work with file storages (network shares or S3), upload and manage files. Each user gets a “home” folder for personal usage.

A lot of work has been done on improving the new UI. Our JavaScript API has been simplified and documented (more to come), and we have switched to RxJS as the default event mechanism.

Also, we have reduced the size of our docker images, and they no longer require sudo privileges during deployment.

Warning: Datagrok docker container is now listening to 8080 port and CVM – to 8090 port.

Release notes:


Datagrok v2020.05.27 has just been released. This version’s main feature is the ability to use modern JavaScript tools to develop packages.
Datagrok JavaScript API was significantly improved.
Also, we made new metadata extractors for files and provided first-class support for CLI utilities.

Warning: JS API has changed, you need to migrate your packages code.
