Product Dev Back to Ghost

Public Dev Meeting 13th Jan

Post image

Although it's been a quiet week for Ghost, 0.5.8 has been released with the awesome new tag management feature, and it is being well received by our users. We're aiming for another release in about 3 weeks time - roughly 2nd Feb.

There are many more advanced features to come with tag management. As pointed out during the meeting, we still don't have any concept of order with tags, as the API doesn't support it. The API is lacking many such ordering and filtering abilities at the moment (example), and we hope that developers will add these features as they find they need them. We are hoping to add a helper to the theme API in the very near future as a first way to make direct use of the API and start locating and adding these missing features.

High priority features that need contributors are navigation and permalinks. The editor updates are planned to land in master very soon, and there is also an open PR to add the facility for fetching next and previous posts from the API - something that has been in extremely high demand.

We're looking to ship as many of these features (and more) as soon as possible, so if you're able to help we want to hear from you. Many of the items on our roadmap aren't fully spec'd out yet, but if you're interesting in working on something, let us know so we know which items are worth focusing on :)

Full details:

The full logs of the meeting are available in our IRC logs, which are now looked after by the lovely folks at botbot.me.

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 week's meeting: Tuesday 20th January, 5:30pm London time.
