Public Dev Meeting 27th Jan

Post image

It's been a quiet week in Ghostland, however there has been major progress on the navigation feature. The UI has seen many improvements and the theme helper has also been worked on this week. Short of ironing out a few issues that were discussed during the meeting, we're almost ready to ship!

Aside from this the week has mostly been cleanup, updates and bug fixes. Matt/Novaugust dropped a work-in-progress PR moving our Ember app over to use ember-cli as the build tool, rather than a combination of grunt and the now deprecated Ember App Kit. This will likely have a big impact on how Ghost is built, but we don't know what it's going to look like yet.

As a result of changes both to add the navigation helper, and to add more flexibility to the URLs in Ghost (i.e for translations) we're getting to the point where we need to revisit the concept of the {{url}} helper and what it can do. For example, how to output the url for the RSS feed of a specific tag?? In the near future there'll be an issue opened to collect use-cases and ideas for how it might look, so if you're a theme developer - keep your eyes peeled for that!

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 3rd February, 5:30pm London time.
