Task Coordination


  • I just wanted to shout out all the great work happening here. Having this completed by 9/20 would be amazing: Addressing Design Tooling Consistency. But it is a lot of work and help is needed


  • As mentioned here, I’m looking for volunteers to help with backporting PHP files for the 6.1. release. I’ve filed a GH issue here — if you’d like to help, please have a look at the it and add a comment and/or add your GH handle next to the relevant file(s)! This should be especially easy for the folks who contributed those changes to Gutenberg in the first place. And it’s a prerequisite for any of those features to make it into CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress.

  • I stabilized the new data hooksHooks In WordPress theme and development, hooks are functions that can be applied to an action or a Filter in WordPress. Actions are functions performed when a certain event occurs in WordPress. Filters allow you to modify certain functions. Arguments used to hook both filters and actions look the same.useResourcePermissionsuseEntityRecord, and useEntityRecords (has now been merged)
  • With @gziolo, we’re working towards publishing TypeScript types with the data (useSelect()useDispatch()) and the core-data (getEntityRecords()) packages. Autocompletion is hopefully coming soon!
