6/4 meeting recap

1st public version!

  • core architecture of the plugin/tools as an as-pure-Javascript app as possible
  • currently AJAX driven, but ready to be switched to using the WP-API endpoints as they become available
  • is backward compatible with the current versino of the Press This bookmarklet as bundled in WP, but also bring its own, more powerful one with it
  • can blog any web page found online, blockquoting an excerpt, including a selection of in-page images to choose from said images are augmented with meta data to sort them in the order the site advertises to be best
  • overrides /wp-admin/press-this.php and its behavior, so that we’re 100% backward comaptible
  • overrides the bookmarklet JS code provided in /wp-admin/tools.php

3 modes
1) direct access: quick post of sort, more to come with media and formatting tools
2) modal: when accessed via new bookmarklet code: will show in an iframe within the visited page itself
3) popup: if the currently visited page is SSL but the target install is not, we open Press This in a popup instead. We also do that if the”legacy” bookmarklet code is used. It’s pretty awesome for Pressing from your sweet smartphone.

Next steps

  • formatting and media upload tools (+editor)
  • de-selecting a picture (if none wanted)
  • embeds
  • Direct access permalink location
