Media Grid Update

I’ve been working alongside @ericlewis on making the Media Library better. Our primary focus has been to adapt the existing media manager modal for use in the page. We’ve been developing over at GitHub:

There are two active branches right now.

In the persistent-sidebar branch, I’ve been exploring alternate UI’s for a grid view, as well as interactions for selecting, browsing, and editing your media. I pushed the latest from the branch to the Media Grid plugin on the plugin repo the other day. Please install it and let us know what you think:

Over in the backbone branch, Eric has made considerable progress breaking the media manager out of its modal. He’s also managed to add the thumbnail size options.

We’re experimenting with using a blog for more regular updates and discussions. If you’d like to join in, just let me know:

We’ll have our normal meeting in IRC today (#wordpress-ui) at 16:00 UTC (12pm eastern) to discuss our next steps. We hope to see you there!
