Remember the Media Grid project? It was original proposed back in the 3.7/3.8 cycle but never really took off — mainly due to our focus on The-Project-Formerly-Known-As-MP6 and the Widget team.
Since then, I’ve been working on a plugin in some spare time: https://wordpress.org/plugins/media-grid/
Its messy. Its basic. But I think there’s potential in the idea to bring the media modal’s layout to the Media Library. @helen created a GitHub repo for development: https://github.com/helenhousandi/wp-media-grid-view (Make sure you checkout the issues, especially: https://github.com/helenhousandi/wp-media-grid-view/issues/7)
I’m looking to form a team to work on this project. I think we could have something ready for 4.0, but 4.1 is a possibility as well. It all depends on you.
I’m looking for any-and-all help, but specifically 1-2 backbone-capable developers with familiarity with the Media Modal would be a huge help.
Maybe we can chat about this a bit during tomorrow’s Dev Chat. Outside of that, lets plan on meeting in #wordpress-ui this Friday, Apr 25 @ 16:00 UTC.
So, are you interested? Leave a comment below and/or join us on Friday. Thanks!
