Current State of jQuery Updater

Roughly a year ago I`ve set the planning for jQuery Updater for WordPress in the post Development Progress of jQuery Updater for WordPress and made a note on the 3.0 release jQuery Updater for WordPress 3.0

This morning I`ve finally got Unit Testing (PHPUnit) and Code Quality up and running. This is powered by Travis CI and Scrutnizer. The development chat is hosted on Slack whereas the source code is still on GitHub. Most functions now also feature a PHPDoc block.

The development release is in the master branch and the latest production in stable.

jQuery Updater for WordPress 3.0

With an announcement for the plans of jQuery (Compat) 3.0 I decided to bump the development version of jQuery Updater for WordPress to 3.0 aswel.

The current development is known as 3-dev. This version also included jQuery Mobile and jQuery UI. This version also contains an administration screen, as created in 2-dev.
The latest stable release is the master
The next-gen 2.0 branch is known as 2-dev. This version contains an administration screen.

Development Progress of jQuery Updater for WordPress

Today I`ve started working on my jQuery Updater for WordPress plugin.

Step 1: moving to GitHub

First step was linking Subversion and Git, which was a hell

Step 2: decide workflow

The second step is deciding the workflow: tools and rules. I decided to skip Grunt and Vagrant for now, since the code isn`t going to be rocket science.
I use phpDoc for documenting the PHP code and GitHub as project management (issues, milestones).

This setup will do fine for now!

Step 3: project management

Making a roadmap, with issues, features and prioritising all that I want before I start working and losing grip on the project.

Step 4: work

Starting with cleaning up code followed by creating space for new features. Leaving the hardest bits for the last. Although this isn`t ideal it makes future  development a whole lot easier.
