Gadget editor UI improvements

Enjoy some major improvements to the Gadget editor UI. Here's a 2-minute summary video of the changes, which includes:

  • Simplified navigation, with less clicks needed to get to where you’re trying to go.
  • Edit your code files side by side with your models.
  • A more compact design reduces the need to scroll.

New settings: Invite contributors, delete an app

Check out two new settings we've added to your Gadget apps, you'll find them  in the new Settings menu in the left-hand nav. 

  • Invite contributors to help develop your app. Simply add their email to send them an invite.
  • Delete your app if you want to tear it down and start over. There’s no undo, so don’t try it unless you’re sure.
