Public Dev Meeting 11th Feb

Today's meeting was a general progress meeting around milestone 0.5. One of the best ways to get visibility on the progress of Apps is to keep an eye on issue #1474. This issue lists open issues, those which have been completed and other useful details.

Ghost apps have made a couple of important steps forward this week. The boilerplate has been improved, and the Ghost-App has been bumped to v0.0.2 and published to npm. The first set of instructions on how to get started with apps are available on the wiki, but are subject to change. Additionally, a new repo Example-Apps has been created to provide examples of how to use functionality as it is added.

The meeting focused heavily on the naming conventions for helpers and filters, and how to gather together a sensible set of filters to add to Ghost 0.5. In particular there was a discussion of whether apps should have any ability to hook into the editor in 0.5, given that those apps would likely break when we refactor the editor in 0.7.

We wrapped up with a discussion about issues which were waiting to be picked up, and who wanted to do what. There are a number of pretty hard and much unloved issues sat in #1474 waiting for someone to grab them, so if you're not involved yet and looking to get stuck in, please do!

The full logs of the meeting are available from Slimer, our IRC bot (who is also on GitHub by the way!).

What is this?

We hold a public development meeting pretty much every Tuesday at 5:30pm London time in the #ghost channel on freenode. In this meeting we discuss progress, important issues, and what is and isn't on the Roadmap. It's a chance for everyone to get involved and have their say about where Ghost goes next.

Hope to see you at next weeks meeting: Tuesday 18th February, 5:30pm London time.
