Performance team meeting summary – November, 23 2021

This is the agenda for the meeting. You can read the logs here on Slack.

Focus group projects discussion

Image focus

@adamsilverstein shared an update for the Image focus. The group plans to go through the ideas in this document to discuss the impact, level of difficulty, etc. and generally prioritize our work. Also, in addition to taking some time during the regular media meeting, the group members are proposing a regular second “performance image focus” meeting in a friendly timezone to APEC contributors. The first try for that meeting will be November 25, 2021, at 02:00 UTC.

JavaScriptJavaScript JavaScript or JS is an object-oriented computer programming language commonly used to create interactive effects within web browsers. WordPress makes extensive use of JS for a better user experience. While PHP is executed on the server, JS executes within a user’s browser. https://www.javascript.com/. focus

The JavaScript focus update was shared by @gziolo. The team is still collecting ideas for issues to work on in this document. They also discussed during the last week during #core-js office hours how to bring ES Modules and Import Maps to WordPress CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress.. The next office hour, focused on issues prioritization is planned on next Tuesday.

Object caching focus

@spacedmonkey put together a list of related tickets he is willing to work on.

Measurement focus

@wp-source stated that the team has some interesting projects ideas. Now, there is a need for some short and regular sync chat for the focus group members to discuss this project. If you are interested in attending one of these chats, please share your interest in this thread on Slack.

Performance features development coordination

@flixos90 shared some insights about the coordination repository proposal. Here are the main outcomes of these:

  • WordPress has historically relied on feature plugins to test future WordPress core features “in the wild”. The proposal here is to follow that approach, however by creating modules in a single “performance features wrapper pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party”.
  • By centralizing these efforts in 1 plugin instead of x plugins, the hope is to significantly reduce maintenance, encourage cross-collaboration between different performance efforts, and have a centralized place for any performance-related conversations.
  • For example, a central GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ repository could be used to open issues with new performance enhancementenhancement Enhancements are simple improvements to WordPress, such as the addition of a hook, a new feature, or an improvement to an existing feature. ideas, discuss them etc, even if they don’t right away lead to a new performance module.
  • A single wrapper plugin also can help from an adoption perspective, essentially interested users can install the plugin once and then will get access to any new performance features as soon as they are added – they can then enable whatever they are interested in to try out.

There have been several discussions about where this repository should be created. The main locations being the Gutenberg repository, and under the GitHub WordPress organization.

After a vote, the repository has been created under the GitHub WordPress organization, and you can find it here.

Performance team meeting summary – November, 16 2021

This is the agenda for the meeting. You can read the logs here on Slack.

Focus group projects discussion

@audrasjb made an update about the progress for the Site Health group. Here’s the document with details about two projects for the focus group. The next step for this group is to use the next Site Health meeting time slot (November 22, 2021, at 16:00 UTC) to discuss these 2 projects.

@adamsilverstein shared that the Images focus group has a long list of ideas. The next task for this group would be to describe these ideas based on the template; listing their impact, complexity etc. and then based on that prioritizing the work of the group.

Should the performance team have its own Make blogblog (versus network, site)?

@spacedmonkey raised this question about having a Make blog for the Performance team.

@flixos90 mentioned that performance encompasses all areas of WordPress. And that having a dedicated performance blog is likely less impactful than posting in the area(s) where a certain topic mostly applies to – a dedicated performance blog may end up in some sort of silo, where only people who are into it anyway become aware of it.

Weekly meeting time

The team has voted to move the meeting time one hour later, at 4:00 PM UTC. The new meeting times are also updated here.

Object caching focus group

The object caching focus now has 7 contributor votes on the focus groups spreadsheet. With so many interested contributors, it is relevant to make it a focus group. @tillkruess and @dustinrue will be the POCs for this focus group.
