Tide rewrite

  • @derekherman and team at XWP working on Node package that generates Serverless APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways.’s from an OpenAPI Specification v3 (OASv3) document that could be foundation of Tide rewrite
  • @derekherman: Node rewrite will make Tide easier to maintain and simplify the architecture
  • While XWP works to complete the Node package, the Tide community will need to define the Tide API spec in the OASv3 format (see wptide#204)

Tide goals

  • Discussion then shifted to goals of Tide and what’s currently desired compared to what was originally built
  • Some items that came up were:
    • Displaying Tide audit results on WP.org pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website.

These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party/theme pages
    • Displaying Tide audit results (immediate and historical) in a private view for plugin/theme developers
    • Ability to editorially include compatible PHP versions for plugins/themes that include backcompat code
    • Assist plugin/theme review team review processes via automated code reviews
    • CI bot / GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers.

  • Please comment on this post or come to the next Tide meeting with any other problems you’d love to see Tide help with or other goals you’d like to see Tide achieve.

1.0.0

  • No major updates across items that remain In Progress or In Review for v1 release
  • @jeffpaul pulled together issues/PRs from wptide, pkg, wp-tide-api, wporg-tide-api, and docs repos into a GitHub project board to help better track To Do / In Progress / In Review / Done items for the v1 release
  • @jeffpaul also worked on refactoring the docs to remove docpress and simplify to GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers.

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/ Pages. Forked repo and sample docs site are available for review and can open a PR to merge changes upstream and then can assign the wptide.org domain to the GitHub Page and be fully migrated off docpress into a simpler setup.
  • Note we can also utilize the default https://wptide.github.io/docs/ URL for a GitHub Pages docs site, but utilizing the existing wptide.org may be more ideal
  • Help testing/reviewing the sample docs site for any inconsistencies against the current wptide.org docs site would be helpful to ensure switching from docpress to GitHub Pages goes smoothly.
