The Glific team is happy to announce the arrival of v0.2, a significant step forward from v0.1, with a broad array of new features and improvements. For the uninitiated, Glific is our open-source, two-way communication platform that allows organizations to communicate with their beneficiaries at scale (100+) in an intuitive manner.
You can watch the demo of the main features in v0.2 in this video
Highlights of v0.2
- Integration with FlowEditor from Nyaruka. This gives the NGO the power to customize and build multiple flows easily for the system.
- Easy to send the same message to different contacts via speed-sends
- This version focussed on ensuring that the interface matched the design specifications
- Improved interfaces to create tags and hsm message templates.
- Better Search capability, including the ability to manage collections of chats/contacts. (e.g. Unread, Not Responded etc)
Highlights from a developer perspective
- Sustained Focus on Code Quality, Code Documentation and Continuous Integration
- Ensuring the backend exposes clean and well defined APIs
- Integration of a Continuous Deployment pipeline. This will allow us to onboard new users and have a demo server up and running by mid month

We have started work with our first organization and will be deploying the product on a pilot phase starting this week. Exciting times indeed. If you are curious, you can take a peek at our v0.3 and beyond requirements document. We are also looking for NGOs who are interested in working with us to build the platform.
