Tide Chat Summary: June 26th
This post summarizes the Tide chat meeting from June 26th in the #tide SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. channel (agenda, Slack archive).
Reminder that the current Tide focus is integrating 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. Compatibility data from Tide into WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/. Once PHP Compatibility is integrated into WordPress.org, we’ll assess the next focus to provide the biggest impact to the community.
- Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. had WiFi issues for the first half of the afternoon so setting up Tide locally was a bit harder for folks than it should have been
- Contributors mostly discussed what Tide is and the GCP setup and capacity over AWS
- There we a couple PR’s that came out of Contributor Day
- @grapplerulrich did a great job leading the team while @valendesigns had focus split getting the final GCP issues ironed out
GCP migrationMigration Moving the code, database and media files for a website site from one server to another. Most typically done when changing hosting companies. & .ORG integration
- The migration to GCP is for the most part complete. Now that we’re in v1.0.0-beta we only have a couple of issues to fix.
- There are docs that need to be tested and updated, a duplicate audits issue where Firestore is not locking the message quick enough and other kubernetes pods are running the same audits more than once (not on every item but enough to be an issue), and the endpoint for .ORG that allows a push instead of pull architecture (this code is written but @valendesigns need to test and merge).
- Seeing a lot more capacity over AWS, maybe 8-10 times more. We were doing at peak around 1.3-1.8k an hour on AWS and on GCP we were doing 12-13.4k an hour.
- When all of the issues mentioned above are sorted we will release v1.0.0 and plan to do a few RCRelease Candidate A beta version of software with the potential to be a final product, which is ready to release unless significant bugs emerge.’s until they are addressed
- @jeffpaul to open issue for item that @grappIerulrich found that is not working, if anyone else runs into issues, please open issues in GitHub
Theme and 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 rulesets
- @grapplerulrich looking to run the subsets instead of the whole `WordPress` ruleset? These would be `WordPress-CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress.`, `WordPress-Docs` and `WordPress-Extra`. This would give us more fine tuned results and exclude `WordPress-VIP`. If we make the change now then we will have a few plugin version to be able to understand the trend.
- We had a conversation with roughly 10 or so contributors on Saturday and the work @jrf has done could be used as the base for targeting plugins/themes. It’s going to need a lot of discussion but some of the heavy technical lifting has already been done.
- We’ll likely look to open upstream issues with WPCS to further the discussion on this topic, we’ll share those issue links here once they’re created.
- In order to accommodate a wider audience, we’ll be moving the Tidechat one hour earlier starting next week, so we’ll now meet weekly at 20:00 UTC.
The next meeting will take place on July 3, 2018 at 20:00 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.
