Feedback on code reviews

  • Open question on caching and results in relation to 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 versioning
  • Aiming to merge develop to master next week when folks are back from vacation, update to come next week
  • @peterbooker noted performance on sync server could improve (e.g. svn changelog from a specific revision), will review more during next week's meeting
  • Any Issues and PRs can get filed to github.com/wptidegithub.com/wptide/tide-issues is a generic place to dump issues if you’re not certain which repo to use

UXUX UX is an acronym for User Experience - the way the user uses the UI. Think ‘what they are doing’ and less about how they do it. of PHPPHP PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. http://php.net/manual/en/intro-whatis.php. compat integration into WP.org

  • Based on followup from @mapk, @rheinardkorf and @obenland@joshuawold sketched up some options for how the PHP compatibility results could display on the plugin. Feedback is welcome on the linked 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/ issue. The biggest thing that would help is getting a sense of which option we should work toward.
  • Mockups show an error count, those relate to errors that cause incompatibility with a specific PHP version
  • PHP compat results are primary focus within UX, "Tide Standards" and any other copy around what those mean, how they’re generated, etc. are secondary though helpful
