Many of you have asked, and now it’s here 🙂

Jerry Clark and the documentation team have been hard at work getting the updated developer guide together. There’s lots of great stuff in here around the new UI and APIs in 7, such as…

  • Working with sidecar views, layouts, and routes
  • Backwards compatibility mode for Sugar 6.x modules
  • Examples of how to use the new REST API

Expect more examples and content to be coming, and definitely let us know how it looks and what more info you need in the comments below.

    Great news, I’ll definitely put that in my top priority list


    I’ve been waiting patiently to be able to test Sugar 7 as it has been said it was to be released sometime this summer.

    However, thus far I haven’t seen any more info about when for example public beta or RC versions will be available.

    Would be great if someone could give me a pointer to where I can find more information about this.


    Amazing !
    Maybe it’s my fault but… I don’t see the pdf version, IMHO it would be great to download it for off-line reading…


    Will there be a CE Edition for Sugar 7?


    Finally! Iwas waiting for it!

    Hi John,
    a good news.



    Disappointing to see the move to JS and Handlebars templates for a majority of the new stuff


    Would it be possible to go more in depth in the documentation with images and examples but at least some screenshots would be appreciated. That’s my biggest pet-peeve with the documentation. Can’t adapt anything from the examples to my needs.
