We’re ready for more contributors to join us on the WP Metadata UI / API project

Where we need help most

  • Field Types – We need help building new field types, we currently have a few basic fields to start off with including the Text, Textarea, URL, Date, and Hidden field types.
  • Actions / Filters – We are now seeking to add in the hooks necessary to extend things further, feel free to request hooks anywhere you see a need for them.
  • Repeatable Fields – We are architecting a solution for repeatable fields, in which you can take a single field and make it have repeatable inputs that let someone add multiple values. These values would be stored in multiple meta values for the same meta key for the specific object ID.
  • Unit Testing – If your UT fu is strong, then strong would the use of your fu be on our team!

Have any other ideas you’d like to help out with? Hop in, the world is your oyster and we’re eager to help you get those pearls!

Join us in #wordpress-core-plugins on Freenode IRC and seek out @sc0ttkclark or @mikeschinkel if you need anything to help you get started, or open up an issue on our GitHub with your questions/feedback.

We’re also still meeting 18:00 UTC on Fridays in #wordpress-core-plugins on Freenode IRC, feel free to search IRC logs for <#metadata> for a history of our previous conversations.

So… ready to start? Head over to the WordPress Metadata UI / API GitHub now, see you there! Happy coding!
