Meeting notes for the October 11 REST API The REST API is an acronym for the RESTful Application Program Interface (API) that uses HTTP requests to GET, PUT, POST and DELETE data. It is how the front end of an application (think “phone app” or “website”) can communicate with the data store (think “database” or “file system”) https://developer.wordpress.org/rest-api/. component chat will be posted by Tuesday, but one item we discussed was @danielbachhuber‘s request to run one additional bug A bug is an error or unexpected result. Performance improvements, code optimization, and are considered enhancements, not defects. After feature freeze, only bugs are dealt with, with regressions (adverse changes from the previous version) being the highest priority.-scrub meeting each week for the next several weeks.
As noted in the REST API outstanding Gutenberg/5.0 issue list post and the notes from last week’s meeting, we have a number of outstanding tasks that need developer attention, and @danielbachhuber is requesting that developers commit to addressing bugs with a one- to three-day turnaround time after taking an issue. (If this is not possible—and it isn’t, for some of these bigger issues—that is alright; but it helps keep things moving if we check in on that schedule). Adding one additional bug scrub each week lets us evaluate our progress and commitments, and reassign in-flight bugs as contributor availability requires.
Upcoming REST API meetings through the end of October:
- Tuesday, October 16, 16:00 UTC: bug scrub
- Thursday, October 18, 17:00 UTC: weekly meeting
- Tuesday, October 23, 15:00 UTC: bug scrub
- Thursday, October 25, 17:00 UTC: weekly meeting
- Tuesday, October 30, 15:00 UTC: bug scrub
The Tuesday bug scrubs have been moved up 1-2 hours from the time of the normal weekly meeting to better accommodate European contributor schedules. We encourage all interested developers to attend any and all of these meetings as you are able, we will be excited to help you find a useful ticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker. to move us towards Gutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ and 5.0!
Edit: All meetings will be held in the #core-restapi slack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/.
