WordCamp Europe 2020 – Mobile Contributor Day recap

🎉The first ever online mobile “table” at 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/. took place yesterday on a Zoom call, in parallel with many other teams! We had some good attendance and most people stayed on for most of the 5 hours(!) of the event! Kudos to all that joined!

We started right after the opening remarks where we had the opportunity to see video introductions from all teams. Depending on the hour, we had something between 4 to 7 people online, while more than 10 people stepped by in total.

We had a nice vibe between the people attending, sharing thoughts and experiences. We also made short introductions of ourselves to get to know each other and better understand where everyone’s coming from. Folks where really devoted to plowing ahead with the tasks and tickets while the star of the show – long compile times – wasn’t enough to deter them!

The topics that we touched were:

  • Looking into adding new languages on GlotPress and the apps
  • Updating onboarding documentation
  • Fixing UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing. and code health issues
  • Help setting the developer environment

Ajith opened and got a PR merged! Eli opened a PR, Stefanos verified and closed a linter ticket and opened an updated one, Hafiz dived into this ticket and Maxime made progress in figuring out the root cause and a possible for this ticket and added some French translations! Long compile/lint times was something that took away some of the steam and it would be nice if an effort to minimize those times can be followed up with.

We wrapped up the day by sharing plans on what we’ll work next on the apps, we waved each other goodbye for now and wished to enjoy the rest of WCEU 2020! Albeit its shortcomings of not being physically present with others, the online version of the Contributor day was a success and some useful lessons can be reused next time! See you all at the WCEU 2020 Networking tracks 👋

To test:

  1. 13320 Go to My Site and verify you can create and publish a new post and a new page using the new Floating Action Button (“+” at bottom right). Test from all three types of sites: WordPress.comWordPress.com An online implementation of WordPress code that lets you immediately access a new WordPress environment to publish your content. WordPress.com is a private company owned by Automattic that hosts the largest multisite in the world. This is arguably the best place to start blogging if you have never touched WordPress before. https://wordpress.com/, Jetpack, Self-hosted. Test in light and dark mode and verify the colors look correct.
  2. 14029 With a fresh install of the app, verify you can see a tool tip that says “Create a post or page” for the for the Floating Action Button (“+” at bottom right).
  3. 14090 Verify the “Create a post or page” tooltip for the Floating Action Button is hidden after five times navigating away and back from the My Site screen.
  4. 13319 Smoke test the “Me” (account profile) section which is now available at the top right of the “My Site” screen when the site picker is not active.
  5. 13582 Go to Reader > Manage (gear icon near top right) and verify you can add and remove tags and follow and unfollow sites. Verify the no results views look correct and work as expected. Test from a wordpress.com login, from a self-hosted only login, and while logged out.
  6. 13580 Go to the Reader and verify the tabs at the top display the expected content. The default tabs are called: Following, Discover, Likes, and Saved. You should see teams and list after that (note: lists are now deprecated but will still display if you had setup any in the past).
  7. 13581 Go to Reader > Following for an account where you have followed several tags and sites, try out different filtered views and verify you can see the correct filtered view.
  8. 14093 Create a new post, add an image block, add an image, tap the edit icon at the top right of the image, and test the drawing feature using the icon that looks like a pen at the top. Verify that the drawing tool works, undo/redo work in the same session, the changes are saved on exit, and that the changes made appear both in the draft and in the published post.
  9. 2226 Create a new post, add some text, go to More (three dots at top right) > Switch to HTML Mode, add some text, add tags for superscript and subscript around some of the text, go to More > Switch to Visual Mode and verify you can interact with the text and that it looks correct once published in View Site, the web, and the Reader.
  10. 21930 Create a new post, add a pullquote block, and try to break it.
  11. 2096 Create a post or open an existing post that contains buttons with colors, make changes to the button text and background colors using the app, publish or update the post, verify the colors appear correctly in the editor, previews, View Site, Reader, and the web.
  12. 2179 Create a new page, apply the “About” Page template, scroll through to ensure the content is using the blocks described here. Repeat the test for the “Blog” and “Services” page templates.
  13. 2205 Create a new post, add a video block, and verify each upload option works correctly. Publish the post and verify the content looks correct in the editor, previews, View Site, the web, Reader, and reblogs.
  14. 21502 Switch the device to an RTL language, verify the icons and buttons in Gallery, Paragraph, List, and Media Text blocks match with the screenshots showing in 21502.

If you are able to complete the entire list above, please continue testing by looking at all the related PRs targeting WordPress-iOS 14.9 and gutenberg-mobile 1.28, specifically any that you are able to and that aren’t already represented above.

Where to Report

  • WordPress-iOS on GitHub for non-block-editor issues.

WordCamp Europe 2020 – Mobile Team Plans and Call for Ideas

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.

Think ‘what they are doing’ and less about how they do it. fixes throughout the app.
  • 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).

  • Mobile specific Internationalization fixes or updates.
