BP Dev-Chat Summary: August 26, 2020

7.0.0 release cycle updates

Everyone was pretty busy during the two weeks preceding this meeting. @espellcaste still have to work on the tickets/issues he shared about the BP REST API & the BP WP CLI during the previous dev-chat.

@im4th informed he decided to commit the patch about adding @wordpress/env to the BuddyPress repository (see #8317): here’s the commit message, it contains some informations about how to install and launch the BuddyPress development environment. He will write a documentation page on the BuddyPress codex. @vapvarun will copy-review this page.

About Members Invitations #8139 @dcavins will update the patch soon to rename some function and variable names according to the conversation he had with @im4th on the Trac ticket.

7.0.0 release schedule

  • 7.0.0-beta1: October 15
  • 7.0.0 : December 1st

BuddyPress.org redesign project

For this part of the dev-chat, we decided to postpone it to August 31st. With @mercime, @vapvarun & @im4th we mainly talked about organizing our development environment (WP Multisite just like the BuddyPress.org network). It is now almost ready. A GitHub repo will house both themes (parent & child) and we now have first wireframes about the main site’s pages 🙌. Here they are!

Next Dev-Chat

It will happen on September 9 at 19:00 UTC and of course in #BuddyPress. If you have ideas or questions, feel free (and we are strongly encouraging you) to comment this summary to share them!
