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.

Node refactoring

  • @ivankk noted the refactored codebase is available at https://github.com/wptide/wptide.org and the respective documentation is at https://staging.wptide.org/
  • Ideal steps are to test Tide on Staging and for those looking to contribute to have a look at those docs and try setting it up locally
  • For anyone testing the local set up, please open issues for any inconsistencies / issues / improvements you see that could be made… thanks!
