Tide Chat Summary: February 20th

This post summarizes the Tide chat meeting from February 20th 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.

WordPress-specific PHPCompatibility standard

Reliability of sniffs

  • @rheinardkorf began process of refactoring the Audit Server in Go and noticed some anomalies in the PHPCompatibility standard (grammar used in messaging has been inconsistent), while waiting for a fix he wrote a parser to understand the messages which then generated a compatibility map for the audit server
  • Results should now be more accurate and inclusive of versions below or above the reported version that violates a sniff (e.g., some features work only on 5.3 but no other version)
  • @rheinardkorf to release the tests and mapping to `wptide/pkg` repo shortly, this is a Go library with tools being used for the Go driven services with the Sync Server as the first one to adopt the package and the new Audit Server will as well

PHP compatibility integration planning

  • If you have additional tasks that you see as necessary ahead of final integration of PHP Compatibility details on WordPress.org, then please reach out to @jbpaul17 (@jeffpaul on Slack).

WCEU Contributor Day

  • @milana_cap organizing WCEU Contributor Day and looking to see if Tide plans to participate
  • Please comment on this post or share in #tide if you’re planning to attend WCEU and have interest and ability to help lead a group contributing to Tide
  • We’ll revisit this topic next week and look to decide if Tide will be present and if so who can help coordinate

Next meeting

The next meeting will take place on February 27, 2018 at 22:00 UTC / February 27, 2018 at 22:00 UTC in the #tide Slack channel. Please feel free to drop in with any updates or questions.

Tide Chat Summary: February 13th

This post summarizes the Tide chat meeting from February 13th 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.

PHP compatibility integration planning

  • There is still a need to validate the accuracy of results
  • Concern from @timothyblynjacobs on audit results (WP CLI-related and WP shimmed functions-related) and their ability to provide confidence on PHP compatibility, but some disagreement on whether these issues should be handled by PHPCompatibility or Tide
  • Need identified in creating a PHPCompatibility ruleset that takes into account WordPress shims and other WP-specific issues, even if it is just a WPPHPCompatibility standard with `ruleset.xml` that includes `PHPCompatibility`
  • Further, a need identified for a repo for rulesets that import standards and add inclusions and exclusions
  • If you have interest and availability to help with the above items, then please reach out in the #tide channel… thanks!
  • If you have additional tasks that you see as necessary ahead of final integration of PHP Compatibility details on WordPress.org, then please reach out to @jbpaul17 (@jeffpaul on Slack).

Tide Chat Summary: January 23rd

This post summarizes the Tide chat meeting from January 23rd 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.

Feedback on code reviews

  • Continuing to look for feedback on Tide repos or existing plugin and theme audit results (focused specifically on PHP Compatibility)
  • @timothyblynjacobs looking for ability to test audit server by passing a JSON payload to it
  • @valendesigns noted it can be tested locally but you need AWS resources to do it (i.e., an SQS queue and an S3 bucket), AWS comes with a free trial to test it out
  • @danlouw looking into way to mock SQS for testing, to try to have something for next week's chat and add to one of the README's
  • The audit server was a proof of concept and intent is to rebuild it with Go, which could include mocked testing, but adding it to the current  implementation is unlikely
  • Best to document improvements desired as Issues filed to respective GitHub repo, and if uncertain which to choose just use tide-issues

UX of PHP compat integration into WP.org

  • @joshuawold added two more mockups into the issue, will look to add a mockup showing a theme page and simplify listing of errors/warnings
  • Plan to assemble mockups and look to #meta for feedback or confirm approach

Documentation
