pre-release17 months ago

Alright, so a lot has changed. Lemme try to summarize it.

Breaking changes


  • The package is pure ESM and will not work with CommonJS projects
  • The imports have been re-written and structured differently.
  • The static server hook has been removed in favor of the package.
  • The cors server hook has been removed in favor of the package.
  • The HttpExceptionHandler has been moved to the @adonisjs/http package.
  • There is no REPL as of now, because Node.js in REPL mode does not support using import expressions. So we need some time to see how to structure REPL

Test utils

  • Remove testUtils.ace().loadCommands helper method. Ace commands will be loaded when attempting to run a command.


Ignitor internals have been changed a lot and are made a lot simpler. The public facing API is still the same, however some of the internally used public methods have been removed. You need to consult the code, if you were using them.


  • No need to generate ace manifest anymore.
  • The commands can have top level imports relying on the container.
  • The providers can have top level imports relying on the container
  • Added scaffolding commands to the core. No need to install assembler for that
  • Add commands to eject scaffolding templates and modify them
  • Make config files typed using defineConfig helper methods.
