Lots of good things happening with GutenbergGutenbergThe Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/. There wasn’t anybody around to recap at this time, but keep an eye out for the next update on the Core Make blog.
There is an amazing team of designers working on the release of WordPress 5.6, there’s some good work happening there too:
@mapk is, among other things, taking a crack at the UXUXUX is an acronym for User Experience - the way the user uses the UI. Think ‘what they are doing’ and less about how they do it. of the Query blockBlockBlock is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience., with @hedgefield also diving into that particular conundrum to offer advice.
@joyously raised the point that the design meeting could use more focus to get people to own design tickets. Before we ran out of time, we talked briefly about how design happens at different paces for each contributor, and that some things don’t always make it to the meeting. It was suggested she makes a list of tickets that she feels have slipped through the cracks and we can review them next week.
