The group formerly known as Metamorphosis Update

Yesterday we held our last round of presentations of post metaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. library authors. Here’s Daniel Quinn on WP Extend, Tom Auger on Zeitguys’ Meta Tool, and Joey Kudish on Custom Metadata Manager.

RIP Metamorphosis

Our current project is not a feature-as-a-pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party. Features are big, user-facing elements that would probably get slapped onto a WP version’s About page. We are a bit more under-the-hood. We’re officially now working as the Metadata component group, working on our current task of creating an APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways. for a metadata UIUI User interface . Although this doesn’t really change our focus, I do think it’s a less pointed perspective to bring to the table, which is good.

Organizational Changes

We’ve been operating out of a big ol’ Google doc since day one. That’s been fun, but we’re going to get a bit more organized. I’ve created a project overview page for the Post Meta UI API project Github repo (Updated 1/11/14), which should serve as a portal to all related content.
