1.0.0 planning

Repo decommissioning + deleting

  • As noted previously, we decommissioned several repos for the alpha version of Tide from WCUS 2017 and have opened issues noting that we’ll be actually deleting those repos shortly, namely:
    • https://github.com/wptide/api/issues/9
    • https://github.com/wptide/lighthouse-server/issues/3
    • https://github.com/wptide/sync-server/issues/17
    • https://github.com/wptide/audit-server/issues/26
    • https://github.com/wptide/tide-local/issues/14
  • Note that none of those repos are still relevant to the 1.0.0-betaBeta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. version of Tide and can cause confusion when people view those repos while trying to setup and run Tide locally
  • Please call out any questions or concerns about fully deleting those repos here or on the issues linked above

Setup + testing feedback

  • When testing the Tide local setup, use this branch as it addresses the issue where the Lighthouse image was failing to build
  • Looking for feedback from anyone who has been able to attempt the setup and running of Tide locally
  • For those who get the time to run through the local setup and can provide feedback (positive or negative), then we’d appreciate the contribution!
