JavaScript Chat Summary for June 27th

Below is a summary of the discussion from this week’s JavaScript chat (agenda, Slack transcript):

  •  A post about the JavaScript framework decision for core is delayed to give more time for feedback.
  • The Weekly JavaScript chats will continue on the current schedule, however, we will no longer be posting agenda’s and summaries will be brief if posted unless something significant is happening, such as a new feature being merged.
  • A lengthy discussion about packages/modules ensued (related – #40834) and a packages repository was created to start collaborating on creating core WordPress JavaScript packages – https://github.com/WordPress/packages.
  • Several candidates were discussed and Yoast offered to donate their a11y package.
  • Discussion of namespacing,  repository management and documentation.
  • @youknowriad suggested we talk about build and test tools at the next meeting make sure to stay consistent with modules and how we use them.

Please join us next week at July 4, 2017 at 13:00 UTC in the #core-js slack channel, or visit at any time to get involved in contributing to WordPress core JavaScript.
