Tide Chat Summary: May 29th

This post summarizes the Tide chat meeting from May 29th 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.

Roadmap wishlist

  • Met previously with folks from Theme Review, coordinating to meet with Plugin Review folks after WCEU on how Tide might best help them
  • If you have roadmap wishlist ideas, then please leave them as a comment on this post, ping @jeffpaul directly, comment in the #tide channel, or add your input as an issue in the `tide-issues` repo and we’ll capture them as we work towards publishing a potential roadmap for Tide

GCP migration

  • Working to migrate to GCP and finishing the Queue and Storage providers for GCP this week; Cloud Storage is finished and Cloud Firestore is WIP; implementing local only providers also
  • Testing the services on GCP this week, depending on how the code review and testing of the Firestore implementation goes
  • By the end of the week we should have a local MongoDB queue provider and be feature complete and ready to clean up the repo, test all services E2E on GCP, and release the new version to the wptide org in GitHub
  • Local setup with be Docker containers, one for each service (API, PHPCS Server, Lighthouse Server, and Sync Server)
  • Assumption that being able to run Tide 100% locally should help make setting it up more appealing to contributors
  • Also adding coverage to the wp-tide-api plugin to ensure it’s solid and ready for the next release
  • Goal by next tidechat is to be ready to have people test the new local setup of Tide and smooth out any issues in regards to needing a cloud provider (AWS or GCP)

WCEU + Contributor Day

  • @valendesigns @jrf @grapplerulrich @nikolam will all be at WCEU and Contributor Day
  • Anyone else who attends should consider stopping by Contributor Day as the Tide and WPCS tables should be next to each other and worth discussing and collaborating then
