Fields API updates from Q4 of 2015

It’s been a while since I updated everyone here about progress on the Fields API. I’ve been hard at work in the code and haven’t come up for air until now, but I’m planning on more regular updates in the coming weeks 🙂

Lots of progress since our last chat summary in early October, here’s a bird’s eye view of what we’ve been up to:

Where can we use help right now?

  • Review our User Profile screen implementation, let us know if it makes sense to you as a developer. It’s the kind of code you’ll be looking at needing for any custom screens you want to implement in plugins or themes, and it’s the kind of code we’re looking at using for other WordPress screens too (Post editor screen, Term editor screen, etc..)
  • Help us create use-cases for each type of object (Custom Post Types, Custom Taxonomies, Users, Comments, Media, Widgets, Nav Menu Items, etc..) — we’re specifically looking for what custom fields you could create for these use-cases and how it could make sense in real world scenarios. You can start out with just the structure, we can help you build the code for it.
  • We’re getting ready to release this on WordPress.org as a plugin, we could use some help to write up a good readme and ensure it directs people to the correct places for involvement

So who do you contact or where do you go to help?

Oh and did I mention that every minute you help us, you make someone really really really happy in the future? It could be your future self that gets to reap the rewards of your hard work!
