🎯 Core Editor Meeting Notes 2017-03-23

Well, the development of WordPress Gutenberg feature plugin has begun. Lots of activity, Slack fun meetings, GitHub issues you should check out. Here’s the meeting summary for this week’s editor team meeting (agenda here) in #core-editor Slack channel.

  • Testing: Lots of tests done at WC London. Summaries will be posted and referenced on GitHub.
  • Plugin Dev: Gutenberg Editor plugin development has begun. Starting with the API. 🎉 — Catch up on this GitHub project.
  • API Discussion: This PR around the API doc is a good start to see the pieces 1 & 2.
  • Better Developer Documentation: Need to work on better dev documentation so the barrier to contribution gets lowered.
  • TinyMCE link boundary feature trucks on. Has some accessibility challenges, but those could be used for good (link).
  • Accessibility recommendations: A good ticket with accessibility recommendations we should keep in the back of our mind.

That’s about it, happy hacking! 🚀

Design meeting time change

From next week we are changing our weekly meeting to be Thursday March 30th 20:00 UTC.

Some people will never be able to make the meetings because timezones are hard. Lets try this and see if we can get some people there who haven’t been able to make the earlier time. All chats will take place in Slack, so there is an archive.

Lets also take this opportunity to see if anyone wants to take notes – reply in comments if you are up for that important task (we can rotate it more than one).

  • Main Focus is moving away from the prototypes, feature plugin starting soon.
  • API & Data Structures: At this stage, we also need to focus on defining the APIs and data structure we’ll be working with.
  • Columns Mockups: @georgeolaru Built incredible mockups for exploring columns-based blocks.
  • Pros & Cons of the third prototype will be revisited.
  • Feature Plugin: As we move on to feature plugins, important to think long and hard about the pros and cons of each, compare the essence of the single and multi-instance approaches.

🎯 Core Editor Meeting Notes 2017-03-08

The Gutenberg project has been going great. Lots of activity, Slack fun meetings, GitHub issues are filled with discussion, you’ll love to read. Here’s the meeting summary for this week’s editor team meeting (agenda here) in #core-editor Slack channel.

Block States

There was a good deal of discussion around the states of a block in general. General consensus led to the following decisions/suggestions (Mockups should be further improved to include five states mentioned below):

  1. Normal
  2. Hover
  3. Editing
  4. Selected block
  5. Selected content within the block

There’s more:

  • Empty State (optional for some, but important for extension flexibility)
  • Ticket for fail-states, like broken hyperlinks and images that didn’t upload, block-parse errors. Even warnings if you try to publish with placeholders.

Moreover, following discussion took place:

  • Text Selection: Selecting text, whether by mouse or via keyboard nav, should invoke controls.
  • Embeds: Include embed in tech requirements, as well as the neutral state.
  • Ticket: What happens to block controls when you page down a draft, when do they show up? On select, on arrow keys, on PgDn? We will discuss further in a ticket.
  • Testing: @karmatosed is offering to test things at upcoming WordCamps. Let her know your ideas in #core-editor.
  • Link Boundary Feature: Everyone loves the link boundary feature. Some accessibility issues that are solvable.

That’s about it, happy hacking!
