Announcements

  • This will actually be our final community meeting of the year, so we will resume on January 4th 2022.
  • At that time we’ll begin our meeting host rotation, starting with @dhruvkb. Each host will also be responsible for writing this post.

Takeaways

  • Everyone was excited by State of the WordState of the Word This is the annual report given by Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress at WordCamp US. It looks at what we’ve done, what we’re doing, and the future of WordPress. https://wordpress.tv/tag/state-of-the-word/. communications around OpenverseOpenverse Openverse is a search engine for openly-licensed media, including photos, audio, and video. Openverse is also the name for the collection of related code repositories that make up the project., and we’ve gotten around 20 new 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/. members since the presentation.
  • We discussed the CC Search redirect a bit, and I shared the implementation for anyone curious.
  • We had lively discussions around monitoring and the Openverse iframeiframe iFrame is an acronym for an inline frame. An iFrame is used inside a webpage to load another HTML document and render it. This HTML document may also contain JavaScript and/or CSS which is loaded at the time when iframe tag is parsed by the user’s browser., where we tried to wok out how to deal with clicks to external links within the iframe. It’s a real challenge to handle links from the right-click context menu, as an example.

Moving to pnpm

Hello fellow OpenersOpeners Contributors to and users of the Openverse project.! I am happy to announce that the Openverse frontend repository has moved from npm to pnpm for package management. Please refer to that PR and its history for the rationale behind this change.

What does this mean for existing contributors?

If you already have used npm to work on the OpenverseOpenverse Openverse is a search engine for openly-licensed media, including photos, audio, and video. Openverse is also the name for the collection of related code repositories that make up the project. frontend repository, follow these steps to prepare your environment for using pnpm in the future:

  1. Delete your node_modules folder (for example, rm -rf node_modules)
  2. Install pnpm using volta by running volta install pnpm
  3. Reinstall dependencies using pnpm by running pnpm install

Now you’ll be able to run all the project scripts using pnpm instead of npm. Note that pnpm‘s “house style” leaves out the run keyword for referencing package.jsonJSON JSON, or JavaScript Object Notation, is a minimal, readable format for structuring data. It is used primarily to transmit data between a server and web application, as an alternative to XML. scripts, so npm run dev becomes pnpm dev. pnpm run dev will also work, it just doesn’t match what the official pnpm documentation recommends. This is similar to yarn.

For new contributors

Please follow the instructions in the repository’s README for setting up your dev environment.

If you run into any issues with pnpm package management while working on Openverse, please open a dx bug in the openverse-frontend repository here.

CC Search Now Redirects to Openverse

Today (2021-12-13) Creative Commons officially began redirecting from search.creativecommons.org to wordpress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org//openverseOpenverse Openverse is a search engine for openly-licensed media, including photos, audio, and video. Openverse is also the name for the collection of related code repositories that make up the project..

CleanShot 2021-12-13 at 15.01.27@2x

All CC Search users can now enjoy an improved experience, including access to images from new sources like StockSnap, along with new Meta Search providers like EDUimages and Images of Empowerment.

Crucially, to make Openverse accessible to a global audience, the user interface is fully translated into 10 languages, with additional partial translations in 22 more languages. Our translations are supplied by our users and contributors; we’d love your help in getting more languages to 100% completion. You can view our translations here and learn more about getting started with translating in the polyglots community.

We’d like to thank Creative Commons for their support through this process, and welcome all the users of CC Search to Openverse!
