Public Dev Meeting 1st July


I thought I'd make these pulse screenshots a regular thing in the meeting write-ups. They're a great way to visualise and compare how active we've all been, and it gets the faces of our awesome contributors in the post. No so many different people this week, but we've closed the same number of issues. Awesome.

This week all of the major pieces of the Ember admin were completed. The Ember admin is now the admin. The old backbone admin has been removed, and the Ember.js version is now served from /ghost/ instead of /ghost/ember/. Whoohoo!


During this week's meeting I asked whether people wanted to continue having 2 open Milestones keeping Ember and MU issues separate, or move the final bits from the Ember.js milestone to the Multi-User milestone and move on. There was a pretty clear consensus, so the Ember.js milestone is now closed, and everyone is looking towards delivering Multi-User.

There are still 2 pretty big phases of MU to deliver, so we've updated our timelines. The first phase aims to make it possible to invite a user, accept an invite, and login as different users. The second phase aims to clean up the permissions around what each level of user (owner, admin, editor and author) can see and do. The first phase closes for PRs at the next meeting on the 8th of July. Phase 2 closes on the 15th of July. At that point we will go into a testing and release phase.

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 week's meeting: Tuesday 8th July, 5:30pm London time.
