Week-End Review – 2020.05

Week-End Review – 2020.05

I can’t believe February is already here. Last month completely flew by! It was a terrifically productive month for us, too. We pushed out three updates plus one more today (which was really finished around Wednesday), so I’ll credit January with four updates.

The last two weeks have been focused on adding some asynchronous behavior to several user pages. There are a couple ways to handle it on the back end: WP Rest endpoints and admin ajax handles. I’ve written code for both and still considering which way to proceed. On the front end, I’ve also been comparing using native JavaScript to jQuery – and even some React! I think I’ll actually pass on React for now. The jQuery that ships with WordPress is incredibly old. I’m a bit worried about building out a front end using such an old package. In particular is the work required to update client code once WP Core eventually gets with the program. By building out the front end using native JavaScript, I can avoid some potential hassle later. Using native JavaScript so far hasn’t been that inconvenient.

There is still at least another week of development before any of these additions make it into an update. Have a great weekend and enjoy the Superbowl tomorrow!
