Customize Meeting Summary: September 18th

This post summarizes the Customize meeting from September 18th in the #core-customize Slack channel (Slack archive).

Participants: @westonruter, @jbpaul17, @melchoyce.

Discussion highlights

CodeMirror (“Better Code Editing“)

  • @melchoyce to review three assigned tickets, #41872 being most urgent and other tickets with @mentions
  • @westonruter: working on ensuring the new CodeMirror-enhanced Custom CSS is compatible with Jetpack
    • Created a reusable “code editor” customizer control so that Jetpack can extend it, also for other plugins to add their own code editor controls easily
    • Need support from the Jetpack team to review and finish off the initial PR that I opened
    • @melchoyce: I’ll ping Jetpack folks this week once we’re all back from the Automattic Grand Meetup (most should be back by Wednesday)

Drafting and Scheduling

  • Best to wrap UX work, as @sayedwp has gotten started on that this week
  • @westonruter to get latest code pushed up to the test environment for review
  • @melchoyce: realized earlier this week that the apps have a similar draft/publish flow
    • @jbpaul17: Are we aligned with the flow there and if not should we align with what they have or open an Issue for them to update to what we’re working on for core?
    • @melchoyce: We are pretty close, I’ll compare side by side this week


  • @westonruter: hoping to get the Core Media Widgets plugin updated with the new Gallery widget today for user testing so we can get it merged into core next week (#41914)

Bug scrub
