Public Dev Meeting 9th December

Post image

Ghost 0.5.6 was released on Friday, after a week of squeezing in a great deal of bug fixes, improvements and new features. We've fully ramped up to regular releases now, and the next one will likely be this Friday again (12th) as there are yet more fixes that we want to get out there.

This week, we're already making massive progress towards finishing up tag management, with PRs for the meta data screen and cover images landing. I am really hoping we can get [#4409] (https://github.com/TryGhost/Ghost/issues/4409) wrapped up - adding a checkboxes to the labs page so that more users can start to play around with tag management (and code injection).

The main blocker to finishing up tag management is the API issue #4521, which is required in order to get a post count for each tag. Locking down the best way to do this, along with thinking about how to exclude tags that aren't associated with any posts from the browse response requires a discussion which started during the meeting and was continued shortly after. When we have a bit more clarity, #4521 will be updated and hopefully that will unblock the issue.

I have also raised a number of new issues around improving the Ghost importer, which is my current focus. For the wider project, the rest of this week will very much be spent pushing forward with tag management, fixing up as many small issues and bugs from the current backlog as we can and hopefully adding the checkboxes to the labs page ready for the release.

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 16th December, 5:30pm London time.
