Dev Chat Summary – June 20th

This post summarizes the dev chat meeting from June 20th (agenda, Slack archive).

Questions and feedback related to WooCommerce 3.1 RC

How will the CSV importer work with classes that extend product, e.g. Bookings? will it work out of the box or adjustment will be needed? bor0

By default support any type of product type, and it’s able to handle all meta data, so for most of the 3rd party plugins should work just fine. There’s still a guide about extending the importer/exporter.

One piece of feedback RE exporting products: any thoughts on adding export by category? seems like it may be better for bulk updates than product type bekarice

If it’s something needed we should be happy to include in 3.1. It’s also possible to support this idea on WooCommerce Ideas Board.

So it looks like the export / import isn’t using the asynch processing? bekarice

All import/export processing is done in batching with AJAX, so as long as the windows is open, it will happily import/export all day.

Is WC core a place we can explore a better background processing than cron? pmgarman

For now import/export does not need it, but this is something that we definitely want to look in the future to improve other use cases, like the mailer.

I’ve a question. Has anyone had to do compatibility updates for 3.1, if so, why and was it core at fault? mikejolley

Most of people just had a little work with deprecation notices, e.g with WC_Order_Item_Meta class, but in general no fatal errors or problems like we had in the past.

Welcome to selectWoo

selectWoo is our fork of select2 JavaScript library, where we fixed several accessibility issues and changed the namespace for WooCommerce usage, this should handle incompatibilities caused by different select2 versions too.
