WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 326 – Long Live the Fields API Project

WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 326 – Long Live the Fields API Project

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by Scott Kingsley Clark, lead developer of the Pods framework. Clark describes what it was like to lead the Fields API project, the difficulties of working hard on a project and not getting core buy-in, and why building the Fields API into core first would have made the transition to Gutenberg easier for users and developers.

He looks back and describes what he possibly could have done differently and provides an update on Pods Framework’s compatibility with Gutenberg. To wrap up the show, Clark played us a song on his electric ukulele. To hear more tunes from Clark, check out his channel on Spotify.
