Product Dev Back to Ghost

Public Dev Meeting 11th Mar

This week we made 3 pretty big infrastructural changes - 1. we switched JSLint for JSHint so that we can use ES6 modules, 2. we added bower for managing our frontend dependencies and 3. we removed all Sass from the Ghost repository, instead pulling in a pre-built css css file & fonts from the Ghost-UI repository and removing Ghost's dependency on ruby in the process.

The Ember.js project is moving forward, with the prototype now merged into the Ember branch. This week we are going to focus on getting a mock API in place to develop against and get the project moving full steam ahead. @hswolff is acting as our 'Ember Envoy' and is the main point of contact for this project.

Work on the real API & permissions continues for Apps on the 003-data-updates branch. This branch is going to continue on for a little longer, as we are going to release master as the next version of Ghost shortly. I've setup Milestone 0.4.2 which closes on the 17th, this contains all the work on 0.5 so far, a few things which are in progress and a couple of bugs. If all goes to plan, this will be released as Ghost 0.4.2 on the 25th of March. More info on what's in the release will be published soon!

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 March, 5:30pm London time.
