Design Meeting Notes for 18 December 2019

These are the weekly notes for the design meeting that happens on Wednesdays. You can read the full transcript on our Slack channel and find the meeting’s agenda here.

Housekeeping

There are two things: @boemedia is stepping down as a team repTeam Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts.. She still be active as WordPress contributor. We want to thank her for being a team rep and her work/support.

Second, today is the last meeting of the year. We will take a holiday break and return on 6 January as our first meeting of 2020.

Updates

It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ updates

@mapkt reported that due to holiday break, there will be no #core-editor meetings or Gutenberg releases until 8 January.

@mapkt together with @aduth reviewed the complexity behind renaming categories for the Block Library. Words are not easy to find, especially when plugins are already using some words. 

Updates

Preparing for 5.4.

@francina asked the #design team if there is anything to be included in 5.4. Ideally within a day or two so a post can go out before the holidays. @karmatosed created a spreadsheet to collect issues/tickets and ideas. @mapk will add any Gutenberg issues and there are already some tickets in trac. If this method of a sheet works, it will be added as a process in the handbook.

The tentative deadline for 5.4. is March, which means we will have about 6 to 8 weeks to work. Not all the items posted on the list will make it, but it will be good to start tracking them. A few suggestions to be considered now are background support to columns, color and typography items.

@shaunandrews mentioned the proposal to simplify the block selected state and @melchoyce would like to add both or at least of @davewhitley’s proposals on a new color palette for WordPress and a consistent spacing system. Another item would be around improving the selected/focus states for blocs

@michaelarestad brought up the site navigation when editing full site. The main goal is to have a one-cohesive, tightly-coupled system rather than multiple disparate interfaces.

The post will come up next week, so we have until Friday 20 December to add items, proposals or ideas to the spreadsheet.

Design Meeting Notes for 11 December 2019

These are the weekly notes for the design meeting that happens on Wednesdays. You can read the full transcript on our Slack channel and find the meeting’s agenda here.

Housekeeping

Although not everyone celebrates the same seasons or holidays, @karmatosed suggested to let next week’s 18 December be the last meeting of the year and meet again on 8 January.

To recap, next week will be the last regular triages and meeting of the year to reconvene in the first week of January. And if you don’t take a break, feel free to triage at any time. Leave a comment if you don’t agree or have another suggestion. 

Updates

GutenbergGutenberg The 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/ updates

@mapk announced that Gutenberg 7.1 was released. A new feature is the Welcome Guide to replace the Tips for New Users. To read more about the new release, read here.

@ibdz gave an update on team profile badges. He chose the badges for Triage and Security. He did some research about unique color selection for those badges, sorted out from current badges. After matched those colors in the color wheel and chose some unique colors. See the images below:

Proposed new badges for new and upcoming badges. The shapes were selected from Dashicons that represent the teams. There are 3 shapes x 3 colors for each team.

Proposal: shapes and colors for Triage and Security badges

Please leave your feedback in the comments. A metaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. ticket will be open for the change of color in the Security badges. 

Redoing the colors for all badges feels like a good progression for this work. @ibdz and @melchoyce will collaborate.

Open Floor

@levinmedia brought up the Figma WordPress/components library that needs updating to current 5.3. @karmatosed mentioned that we have a process to update WordPress components.

@levinmedia finds the proposals page a bit formal for updating the components to match what already exists. If not proposing anything news, he suggests that the best approach might be to update components directly on the components page without publishing. Then, prior to publishing, enlist people that are familiar with Figma and the components to review and ensure they’re an accurate representation of what’s in code and adhere to Figma best practices. 

One thing to keep in mind if we copy or build updated components on the proposals page, existing components will not be linked anymore. When the new, updated components are published, the existing ones that are already in use won’t update. They’d have to be deprecated. Old components won’t vanish from an existing design, but they would need to be manually updated. Expect a make/design post to expand on this.

Gutenberg Phase 2 Friday Design Update #40

I missed last Friday’s update, so let’s see if I can catch up on everything related to GutenbergGutenberg The 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/ design today. Happy Friday!

Full-site editing

There’s a new Focus page in the Design Handbook dedicated to full-site editing. This will be updated as progress happens, but the design tasks will happen on 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/.

A couple of design explorations in the form of prototypes were shared in slackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. earlier this week by @shaunandrews. These prototypes are to encourage thinking around full-site editing and are not final solutions.


BlockBlock Block 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. Directory

As many of you know, the Block Directory interaction is new to the Gutenberg 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 which allows the installation of single-block plugins directly from within Gutenberg. It’s pretty amazing. There’s a new Focus page for this as well in the Design Handbook.

Reading update

There was a recent post by @melchoyce on Blocks, Patterns, and Layouts. This post helps convey some terminology and how the Gutenberg puzzle fits together.

Design meeting notes 13 Nov 2019

These are the weekly notes for the design meeting that happens on Wednesday’s. You can read the full transcript on our Slack channel and find the meeting’s agenda here. You can join the SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. channel by following the instructions in our handbook.

@karmatosed starts off with two suggestions to keep us working more organised and focused.

Firstly, one of the common issues when starting to contribute or finding your way to is to discover what is going on and what the context behind it is. @michael-arestad suggest to add our focus projects to the Handbook, like full site editing for gutenbergGutenberg The 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/ for instance, it will be easier to read up, and could also include a timeline if known, links to where the work is happening and who is involved.

This could go hand in hand with the Make blogposts, that maybe the Handbook page can curate. The lead on a project would have the responsibility of keeping the info up to date as the project progresses. MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. has something similar at https://make.wordpress.org/meta/projects/

Secondly, @karmatosed suggests iterating and bringing our Trello board back from not being at the heart with a new workflow structure:

  • Inbox
  • Needs design
  • Needs feedback: this will be what we pull weekly meeting from
  • Building
  • Blocked
  • Icebox

The icebox could become a place where ideas go to die, but as @foletto remarks, that will happen anyway with some ideas no matter how we sort the project.

This also frees up the labels from being part of the workflow, and allows them to be used the way they are intended to.

Both suggestions will go up as proposal on the Make blog for further discussion.

A discussion about 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/ vs TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the make.wordpress.com/marketing team uses for example: https://trello.com/b/8UGHVBu8/wp-marketing. spun off of this idea that will be continued at a later time.

Next, @mapk brings Gutenberg updates. Gutenberg 6.9 is almost out! Lots of things being worked on. Do note that the Gutenberg 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 v6.5+ needs WP 5.3 now.

For WP 5.4, there are some Gutenberg focuses left this month https://make.wordpress.org/core/2019/10/29/whats-next-in-gutenberg-november/. @mapk and @shaunandrews will run some usability tests on the new nav blockBlock Block 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., which is almost done.

Then, some interesting reading material was shared:

@hedgefield noted he would ask the team at Yoast that worked on this Gutenberg-based storytelling page if they had any wishes or suggestions to improve the workflow next time around.

And finally, @melchoyce would love some feedback on this idea for multi-block layout patterns for the block editor: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/17335

Proposal: Creating new WordPress Style Guide resources

At the moment, the style guides within the Design Guidelines are a little bare. Specifically, there are things we can add to improve the experience in interacting with these docs. A great example would be this online tool Material UI Colors, which copies the colour’s hex code to your clipboard when you click it.

In the latest Design Meeting, I suggested that it might be helpful to improve the WordPress style guide by building resources in a new open documentation site, one with features like instant copy/paste and code snippets where applicable. This site could showcase the content that already exists – specifically colours, typography, and iconography.

It would not necessarily designed to replace the existing make guidelines, but compliment it as an external resource. Similar to how the existing colour page links to an external codepen.

It would be particularly cool to have this available for people before WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. US so that everyone participating on Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. could use it and potentially get onboarded faster.

The site would be open sourceOpen Source Open Source denotes software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. Open Source **must be** delivered via a licensing model, see GPL. from the beginning, with the code available on a 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. It would have automated workflows that’ll make it much easier to contribute to (and play around with). Anyone would be able to add issues and submit pull requests. I’ve built several doc sites and style guides in the past, so it’ll be something I can do relatively quickly.

If so, I can go ahead and create it and ask for some feedback next week. Perhaps around Oct 8th, a little bit before the next Design Meeting. If we like the end result, the site could expand to include content for identity, coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress., templates, and other content from WP style guide.

Share your thoughts about this idea in a comment on this post!
I can’t wait to know what you think.

Design meeting notes for Oct 2nd 2019

These are the weekly notes for the design meeting that happens on Wednesday’s. You can read the full transcript on our Slack channel and find the meeting’s agenda here. You can join the SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. channel by following the instructions in our handbook.

Firstly @mapk updates us on GutenbergGutenberg The 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/ developments. Gutenberg 6.6 is live! The Inserter has a really nice help panel to preview blocks now. And lots of bugfixes. Priorities for Gutenberg development are discussed every week in the #core-editor channel, great for anyone wanting to stay up-to-date and lend a hand.

Next, @melchoyce is working on the About page for WordPress 5.3 and beyond. Work is being done to make the page more modern and welcoming, and more dynamic in terms of making it, using variables and consistent patterns to make it possible to change styles without a lot of manual work. The layout will probably be generic across each release, with colors and illustrations adding unique elements each release. Feel free to add feedback to the Figma file.

And finally, @itsjonq pitches a plan to improve the design team handbook pages with an open-source overhaul, offering code snippets and such, to make the experience more user friendly. His plan is to have it ready by WCUS. Feedback and volunteers are welcome, a Make post on the subject will be written soon. Exciting!

  • Circle cropping on images!

And lots more.

@mapk could use some design eyes on the upcoming Replace Image dropdown.

The team is also working on multi-selecting non-consecutive blocks.

If you want to help out with Gutenberg design: each week at 17:00 UTC, @mapk organises a triage session in the Design Slack channel.

@shaunandrews asks for feedback around the nav block settings.

Helphub update

@estelaris started gathering requirements from notes and GithubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers.

She has some questions about the use of the anchor tag on the title: does it need to be visible? @melchoyce and @shaunandrews say yes, they use it to easily bookmark the url. According to Estela, the docs team is not aware of this use. A short discussion follows, and @itsjonq shows a great example of how this is used on Github. The people attending the meeting suggest proposing this as an alternative to the # that’s now used. If you have thoughts or idea’s on this, please leave them in the comments of this post.

Github shows a link icon when you hover a title

Mobile view issues for Helphub

The mobile view homepage for the helphub has issues, due to the large space that’s taken by the blue search section. There appears to be nothing else on the page. @mapk proposes to look at this site-wide, as other pages have this issue too. We therefore need a broader solution for mobile display. According to Mel Choyce, every instance of the blue banner is a different code base. If you have thoughts on this, please leave your comments here or in the ticket for this issue.

Call for discussion around the full screen modal

@shaunandrews would love to see more chatter about the pattern of the full screen modal and its potential use. Read the Slack discussion on this topic and add your thoughts there or on the ticket.

Gutenberg Phase 2 Friday Design Update #30

Happy Friday, everyone! Gutenberg 6.3 was released! Among the many enhancements was the new Navigation Mode that loads by default when opening the Editor. The AccessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accessibility) Team communicated the difficulty tabbing through every blockBlock Block 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.

It feels natural, but we need more feedback, so a call for testing was recently posted.

Additional improvements with GutenbergGutenberg The 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/ 6.3 include:

WordPress Components

A call for feedback and contributors
Lot’s of work happening as shared in a recent post by @drw158. Dave outlines a great opportunity to unify design patterns across WordPress and outlines the process.

WordPress Component Doc Site
As mentioned in the GitHub PR#16953, This unofficial site is @itsjonq‘s effort to gather the component documentation into one place that shows live examples of each design pattern. It simply imports the component documentation and spits out a beautiful site with visual examples of what each component looks like. I believe Q (itsjonq) is also looking to include live code editing in a sandbox as well on the site. It’s currently a work-in-progress that can be found here: https://q-wordpress-component-doc-site-test.netlify.com/

Widgets to blocks

Improvements included in 6.3:

  • Prevent the block toolbar from overlapping the widgetWidget A WordPress Widget is a small block that performs a specific function. You can add these widgets in sidebars also known as widget-ready areas on your web page. WordPress widgets were originally created to provide a simple and easy-to-use way of giving design and structure control of the WordPress theme to the user. area headerHeader The header of your site is typically the first thing people will experience. The masthead or header art located across the top of your page is part of the look and feel of your website. It can influence a visitor’s opinion about your content and you/ your organization’s brand. It may also look different on different screen sizes..
  • Add the BlockEditorKeyboardShortcuts component.
  • Fixed block paddings.

Block Directory

@melchoyce has been iterating on the Block Directory mockups in Figma. The development is moving smoothly with the block installation process just about completed. @karmatosed will be testing this with contributors during Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time.

As you all may remember the Navigation block went through a design pivot a few weeks ago. It’s received a focus issue created by @tinkerbelly to get the toolbar controls figured out. Contributors have been dropping in with feedback and opinions, so please join them in the GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers.
