The latest updates to Canva's app development platform.
- Content extensions can now include multiple types of content, such as images and embeds, in a single response. This is a backwards-compatible change that makes content extensions a lot more flexible. To learn more, see Content types.
- When Canva sends requests to the
/content/resources/findendpoint, it now includes a
typesproperty in the request body. This property contains an array of content types that can appear in the response, which is in preparation for a change that will let content extensions return different types of resources (for example, images and embeds) in a single response. The existing
typeproperty, which can only contain a string, is now deprecated.
- Improved the Client secret field in the Developer Portal. Previously, the key was provided as a base64url-encoded string and your app needed to convert it into a base64-encoded string. The key is now provided as a base64-encoded string.
- Editing extensions can now process images on a server, instead of via a browser. This makes it possible to perform CPU or GPU-intensive image manipulation tasks (for example, tasks that rely on machine learning). To learn more, refer to Remote image processing.
