Tide Chat Summary: December 12th

This post summarizes the Tide chat meeting from December 12th in the #tide Slack channel (Slack archive).

Tide focus

  • Current focus/priority/goal is integrating PHP Compatibility data from Tide into WordPress.org
  • Once PHP Compatibility is integrated into WordPress.org, we’ll assess the next focus/priority/goal to provide the biggest impact to the community

Progress on code open sourcing

  • @valendesigns: we are working towards being 100% Open Source and having the API back online (with re-audit) no later than December 20th, likely sooner. The transition to Open Source is not a straight forward task and has been pretty much been the teams singular focus since last week. We are rebuilding the local dev environment to make it easier to contribute. We can't open the sources without exposing sensitive data so all the repos are being rebuilt.
  • @valendesigns @rheinardkorf @danlouw @jbpaul17 from XWP are working on Tide
  • Tide API will include WPCS and PHPCompatibility output, scoring will no longer exist
  • wptide.org site from WCUS was a client to demo what COULD be done, it wasn’t meant to be what WILL be done on actual Tide integration to WordPress.org
  • Demo from WCUS wasn't 100% functional, some things may have worked better than others
  • After code is available as open source, we'll need lots of testing to help ensure results are faultless
  • @sergey has done work on some PHP-related tickets, would be good to have him gloss over the PHP compat part of the code when released
  • @williampatton able to assist with docs if there is guidance on what's needed
  • @barry to handle WP.org integration, @otto42 waiting until API is ready to query against

UX for integration of PHP Compat from Tide into WordPress.org

  • @joshuawold is the design lead at XWP managing UX for how PHP Compatibility could be integrated into WordPress.org, working with @maximsiebert on UX options
  • We'll want input from someone on the Meta and Design teams as feasible to review the UX/design
  • @obenland can cover Design from Make/Plugins
  • #40934 is prior work covering UX around not being able to install a plugin when your PHP version is not compatible, @joshuawold to review this and as input on PHP Compat UX for WP.org
  • @joshuawold to review UX with @mapk who was the original designer for the plugin directory
  • Updates on UX/design to be shared in #tide as they're available

Next week’s meeting

The next meeting will take place on December 19, 2017 at 22:00 UTC / December 19, 2017 at 22:00 UTC in the #tide Slack channel. Please feel free to drop in with any updates or questions.
