Better Block

umi ui has been released, click here experience.

In v4 we released the block function, and we added some new features in a period of use and feedback to help users better use and experience the block.

🚀 Faster

In the new umi block we will help the user to automatically select the appropriate source. In the previous version, the block will use the default npm source. For users with poor network status, the improvement is obvious. The package management tools and sources you will be prompted for during the block installation.


If you want to use your own package management tools and sources, you can customize them with --npm-client and --registry.

npx umi block add AccountSettings --npm-client=yarn --registry=

🌟 Block comes with npm and taobao sources, depending on the network to decide which source to use. Also, if your project contains a yarn.lock file, the block will use yarn to install the block.

🌟 TypeScript to JavaScript

The default block in Pro V4 is TypeScript, and some users still want to use the JavaScript version of the block for development. In the new version we have added support for js. If you need a version of js, just add the --js parameter.

npx umi block add AccountSettings --js
