UI component

  • Check out the README file for instructions on how to use UI component, or check the ui directory for complete source code.

Other features and updates

Minor API changes

  • We removed workerLocation property from WasmSDKLoadSettings.
    • Web worker is now inlined into the source code, which simplifies the SDK deployment and usage.
    • Property engineLocation in WasmSDKLoadSettings must be an absolute path.
    • Removed useWebWorker property from WasmSDKLoadSettings, since web worker is now always used as it provides much better user experience
      and does not block the UI browser thread.


  • We improved the data match logic for Guatemala Consular ID in BlinkID(Combined)Recognizer.
  • We fixed the initialization promise chain so that you can handle all initialization errors with a single error handler (Issue #13).
