Tide Chat Summary: March 16th

This post summarizes the Tide chat from March 16th 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.

Node refactoring

  • @derekherman updated Status schema to allow Status UI to be sortable, will drop DB and rerun sync server after tweaking logic and iterating to resolve failed jobs
  • @antpb continuing to refactor PHP Compatability Checker plugin, may need small iterations on Tide schema/etc. to best align to 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
  • @jeffpaul ran through local setup, focused on getting docs running and not full scale Tide, small PR to adjust Staging Docs, considering another PR to more obviously separate docs vs. complete Tide local setup
  • @derekherman to update architecture diagram to match new Node setup
  • Current Tide version in Production using Golang costs ~$600/month, last month Tide version in Staging using Node cost $2.66 and has cost a total of $6.64 since October
  • If you have time, please try out the updated Tide local setup using Node and call out any issues you see… thanks!
