Retool 2.73.1


Switching between edit and preview is now much snappier! When building an app in Retool, you’ll often jump back and forth between editing your app and previewing what it looks like for your end users. We’ve just shipped some big performance improvements to the path:

Performance is always top of mind for us. In an effort to make every app load faster, we’ve leveraged code splitting to reduce the size of our main Components bundle by 63%. Now, your apps only pay a performance cost for the components you use. We have several engineers focused on burning down a list of similar improvements to app performance–drop us a note at if there are parts of Retool you want us to focus on!
