Mobile Team Intro

I’m Isaac, acting rep for make/mobile.

Mobile WordPress is: 6 open source native apps under the WordPress umbrella that interact with WordPress installs through the XML-RPC APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways.. We also help contribute to coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. to extend and enhance the API. Over time, we hope we can lend a hand for any mobile/responsive pushes in core for the web admin.

WPCSWordPress Community Support A public benefit corporation and a subsidiary of the WordPress Foundation, established in 2016. Action Items (please add if I missed any):

  • Migrate all app’s landing pages, blogs, dev blogs, forums/FAQs to live on 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. @aerych is helping on our side for this, looking for next steps.
  • Create a page on the make/mobile blog that clearly explains what Mobile does, what gaps the mobile apps fill, and what their target use case is.
