Agenda: Cross-platform packages

Slack Conversation

In the near future we want to publish a mobile components library to allow cross-platform development of blocks, how can we document mobile/web specific props? The proposal currently only touches README files which are manually crafted. So far we assumed that this code is only used in WordPress. How could we make packages that are interoperable with both React DOM and React Native?

The mobile team is trying to make the API’s / Prop interfaces for mobile and webcomponents as similar as possible. But it will be hard to make them entirely the same. So we need to make sure we find a way to manage the documentation for these things better. Jorge Bernal will work on a proposal based on https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/17145.
