Metadata group will be having its weekly meeting tomorrow, Tuesday, December 24, 19:00 UTC.

I’m sure some contributors will be taking the day off, so no big decisions will be made. We’ll be reviewing where we’re at in terms of research, and adjusting course accordingly.

We’ve been focusing heavily on 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. libraries, which has been insightful. Post Meta libraries serve as a post meta 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., since there isn’t anything in coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. past register_meta() for sanitization/authorization, and the getter/setter functions get_post_meta(), add_post_meta(), etc.

We need to scale back our perspective a bit to the macro scale, and put down some design pattern summaries for other existing WordPress APIs that will need to be supported in this mega form building API. In that regard, I started penning a design pattern summary for the Settings API, which is in a very rough draft, but should be completed this week. The CustomizerCustomizer Tool built into WordPress core that hooks into most modern themes. You can use it to preview and modify many of your site’s appearance settings. API will be next on the list to analyze. Any volunteers for that?
