Simplicité Software — Version 3.2

Simplicité Software — Version 3.2

After a great start to the year, we present to you here the new version of the Simplicité platform. This is the Simplicité version 3.2 officially available since the beginning of January.

Based on the sign of ripening, this version brings to life a year of R&D in all areas in order to offer the best possible business application creation experience.

Here is a summary of the main new features in Simplicité version 3.2

Simplicité being a platform self-interpreting, data loading and memory management performance are essential.
That is why we continue the background work which consists of improving and refining cache management and object loading. You will notice right away, upon connection (2x faster) and when displaying complex lists for example.

When setting up the Simplicité platform as a Start-up back-end Lofty, we worked with 3 different front-ends (Web, iOS, and Android). This experience allowed us to refine and complete the API made available via REST/JSON.


On another axis, we simplified the creation of specific pages within the platform. The development of a Front-end for external users, is now much easier. A good example is the simulator Return to France available since the beginning of February.

Retour en France

For administrators and application designers, we improved the management of error logs. Now, the name of the script and the offending code will appear during a compilation or runtime error. As a reminder, the logs are also available in the browser console.

In addition, of new update mechanisms are available for customers Cloud. On the one hand, you can now automatically upgrade from version 3.0 to version 3.2, on the other hand, the maintenance patches will be updated automatically. No need to know what patch you were on anymore, update scripts have become smart.

Since the Simplicité platform is mainly dedicated to IT professionals, it is not designed to do “simplistic” things, but to make complicated things simple. However, aware that the platform requires a bit of training and in order to facilitate its handling, we have set up a discovery mode. The Easy Mode. This allows you to discover the key concepts and to create a first application simply via a series of screens. You can test this mode by creating a sandbox (available for 1 month) directly online.

We also worked on our ecosystem, since new modules are available on our resources. Whether it's about new features like the Markdown module that allows you to manage your documentation in Simplicité, or utility modules like BootstrapTools, providing front-end creation tools.

Boostrap tools

Below is a non-exhaustive list of the new features in v3.2 whose screenshots and examples you will find here: Simplicité resources.

On the menu


— The core cache contains all the definitions of all the objects.
— At startup all definitions are read in 1 second.
— Much less database access when instantiating objects.
— Optimizing the loading of lists with complex rules
— The login is 2 times faster


— Replacement of the JAVA applet to send user feedback by a more modern HTML5 version
— Support for OAuth2 authentication of the “France Connect” State
— EAN bar code management
— Integration of the TinyMCE HTML editor for the management of HTML fields
— Possibility to add external data sources (with Tomcat) directly in Simplicité
— The diff module has been improved on the processing of images, scripts, resources
— SAML authentication added


Small changes, big improvements
— All actions on objects are configurable, this is the case of the 3 buttons “Save”, “Save/Close” and “Close”. Often a source of questions, these 3 buttons can be configured at the level of each object.
— Redesign of graphic modeler : a big advantage of the Simplicité platform, the graphic modeler allows you to have a view of the business and to navigate it. However, it could be put to the test in the case of complex models. That is no longer the case. You can take advantage of this tool even with a diagram that has many objects and many links.
— Module management goes a step further with the addition of links between modules. By creating a link between 2 modules, you build the skeleton of your application. No more mistakes possible by deleting a module that would be useful to another.
— A new module Markdown to manage documentation directly in the platform.


— The Menus Can be minimized, when the size of the screen requires more space.
— the browsing history has been replaced by a clock icon.
— shortcuts are available for each user by top right of the screen


— Even more default metrics: addition of the list of browser user-agents.
