Public Dev Meeting 7th October

pulse

It's been a quiet week at Ghost, so it's going to be a very quick meeting writeup.

This week my focus has been on relaunching the developer docs using readme.io. I'll publish a further update about this and what the future for it looks like, but in the meantime you can check them out over on http://docs.ghost.org.

We spent much of the meeting discussing how to approach a couple of issues that aren't 100% clear. There's still quite a lot of churn going on as UI bugs get fixed, one of the biggest of these being that the users page in settings is only listing 20 users as the infinite scroll has broken. Getting these sorts of things fixed is a priority, so we can push out updates to our users.

We also discussed how to request and receive the next and previous post in the chronological post list, via the post API. It's quite a common feature to display a link to the next post at the bottom of the current post, and our API doesn't yet support doing this. There are a number of additions and amendments like this that we want to make to the API as well as getting oAuth fully rolled out so that 3rd party clients are able to authenticate and work with the API.

Full details:

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 14th October, 5:30pm London time.
