Editor chat summary: March 13th

This post summarizes the latest weekly Editor meeting, held in the #core-editor Slack channel, on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, 14:00 UTC.

Block Directory Proposal

  • @youknowriad shared the block directory proposal post and raised that the current block registration APIs do not allow for this kind of plugins, and therefore this would need to be be resolved before building the directory. It is proposed that a private API is created first for use only with core blocks to allow iterations.

Discussions are to continue on the above post and the relevant pull requests.

Code Owners Experimentation Feedback

A few weeks ago, a code owners flow has been introduced to the Gutenberg repository. This allows to  automatically ping people to review pull requests based on their interests on a certain area of the codebase.

A Discussion took place on the goal for this and whether it was achieved.

  • @aduth raised that one of the goals is to raise awareness and to get more core contributors.
  • @nosolosw felt that sometimes too many pings were sent out, and as a new contributor couldn’t commit the required time to review the codebase.
  • @youknowriad feels that the new workflow is not useful for occasional contributors.
  • @mcsf feels that the file paths do not map to the topics that people are interested in.

The new workflow will be kept for now, and reviewed at a later date.

Key Pull Requests

  • Block Management@aduth is actively working on this PR, some minor decisions still to be made, including wording.
  • Section Block – General consensus is that this should be shipped as an experimental block first. This is hoped to land soon, and will be iterated upon.
  • Block outlines UI – The PR is close to merge, it improves the Block outlines for the hover and selected state. @kjellr would like some feedback and testing on this PR.
  • React 16.8 Upgrade – React is going to be updated  on time for WordPress 5.2

Tasks Coordination

  • @aduth @mapk and the design team will be shipping the block management UI shortly
  • @get_dave and @danr are working on the section block (and related items) and will hopefully land a v1 shortly
  • @kjellr @joen @mapk and others are improving the hover and selected block outlines
  • @gziolo is working on the Block Registration API v2 and Axe tool integration
  • @youknowriad is working on the block editor module
  • @nerrad will resume working on the effects -> controls migration
  • @nosolosw and @gziolo are working on wp-scripts CLI improvements
  • @marekhrabe is working on improvements to the Media & Text resizer
  • @jorgefilipecosta is working on inserter improvements, e2e tests and the widget screen APIs

Editor chat summary: February 20th

This post summarizes the latest weekly Editor meeting, held in the #core-editor Slack channel, on Wednesday, February 20, 2019, 14:00 UTC.

Gutenberg Release 5.1

Gutenberg 5.1 has been released which marks the end of the widget to blocks project. There are a range of essential enhancements which have been made in this release; details can be found on the release post.

WordPress 5.2 Planning

Based on the proposed schedule and scope for 5.2, a proposal to synchronize the Gutenberg plugin release dates with the WordPress feature-freeze date have been shared. Some concerns were raised about the short timeframes. This will be adapted to the final WordPress 5.2 release schedule.

The WordPress 5.2 scope has been discussed including the need for block discovery and management solutions as many users are feeling overwhelmed with the available choices.

Concerns about the short time frame to achieve these goals for 5.2 were shared and it was suggested that being able to turn blocks on/off. Favourite blocks could form part of 5.2. The wp.org directory could be independent of this roadmap.

Updating wordpress.org/gutenberg

The role and the necessary updates for this page were discussed:

  • The copy of the content needs to be refreshed.
  • Consistency with the marketing terminology is important.
  • Whether the page should be a feature page, or more related to the project roadmap.

@joostdevalk shared a call for ideas and thoughts over the next couple of days.

Tasks Coordination

For the next week, this is what everyone is working on:

  • @gziolo is starting to implement the new Block Registration API.
  • @mkaz is continuing on the documentation effort (i18n and JavaScript setup).
  • @youknowriad is starting to plan the block management and the widget screen work.
  • @youknowriad and @aduth will work on landing the generic block editor module.
  • @nosolosw is going to continue on the React deprecated APIs and JS documentation auto-generation.
  • @getdave and @marekhrabe are working on vertical alignment for the columns and media+text blocks.
  • @talldanwp and @andrei are working on the section block.
  • @jorgefilipecosta is working on improvements for the Calendar block, MediaPlaceholder and block insertion restrictions.

Open Floor
