Public Dev Meeting 29th Apr
Yesterday's meeting was a year to the day that we launched the Kickstarter campaign. Here's the second ever commit to the GitHub repo, which happened during the KS campaign after a week or so of cleaning up the prototype into a state fit for other developers...just about. We've come a long way in a year, and are very grateful to all of our contributors past, present and future for all of their time and hard work helping us to deliver Ghost.
Our API project has been progressing over the last week, and will hopefully be wrapping up this week - I have asked for all PRs to be submitted by Friday, and anyone who has an issue they cannot get completed by then needs to let us know. We'll use the weekend to test, merge and clean up loose ends. The API will be marked as v0.2 to indicate the progress & we'll ensure we have full documentation.
During the upcoming projects - Ember, Multi-user and Apps, the API will continue to evolve to meet our needs. One major evolution will be the addition of OAuth to Ghost for authenticating between the Admin UI and Ghost itself. With this addition, we will also add OAuth for the API, bump the API to v1, publish the documentation and declare the API ready for public use.
In next week's meeting we will be kicking off the Ember project into full swing. If you're interested in getting involved please come to the meeting, or if you can't make it drop in IRC sometime and let us know you're around and interested!
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 (note that the UK has just moved onto Daylight Savings Time, so the meeting is an hour earlier than it was previously). 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 6th May, 5:30pm London time.
