Tide Chat Summary: January 23rd

This post summarizes the Tide chat meeting from January 23rd in the #tide Slack channel (agenda, Slack archive).

Reminder that the current Tide focus is integrating PHP Compatibility data from Tide into WordPress.org. Once PHP Compatibility is integrated into WordPress.org, we’ll assess the next focus to provide the biggest impact to the community.

Feedback on code reviews

  • Continuing to look for feedback on Tide repos or existing plugin and theme audit results (focused specifically on PHP Compatibility)
  • @timothyblynjacobs looking for ability to test audit server by passing a JSON payload to it
  • @valendesigns noted it can be tested locally but you need AWS resources to do it (i.e., an SQS queue and an S3 bucket), AWS comes with a free trial to test it out
  • @danlouw looking into way to mock SQS for testing, to try to have something for next week's chat and add to one of the README's
  • The audit server was a proof of concept and intent is to rebuild it with Go, which could include mocked testing, but adding it to the current  implementation is unlikely
  • Best to document improvements desired as Issues filed to respective GitHub repo, and if uncertain which to choose just use tide-issues

UX of PHP compat integration into WP.org

  • @joshuawold added two more mockups into the issue, will look to add a mockup showing a theme page and simplify listing of errors/warnings
  • Plan to assemble mockups and look to #meta for feedback or confirm approach


Next meeting

The next meeting will take place on January 30, 2018 at 22:00 UTC / January 30, 2018 at 22:00 UTC in the #tide Slack channel. Please feel free to drop in with any updates or questions. If you have items to discuss but cannot make the meeting, please leave a comment on this post so that we can take them into account.
