More WordPress Plugins removed

Today I`ve redrawn the following WordPress plugins from WordPress.org;

  • Opera Speed Dial
  • Has.js
  • jQuery Mobile (Updater)
    This plugin will be included in a future version of jQuery Updater

This means that they are no longer available or supported

I will post the source code on GitHub later this week.

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.
