#5000 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Auto QA plugins - no QA time wasted on our tiny issues during dev

Transferred from #WP49342.

Could we as developers have an auto QA api that reads our proposed plugin at a zip location - and spits out QA failures?

That way we can all fix problems while doing dev - and not fix problems a month later after we submit for first time.

My first plugin - spent one week - just getting auto reply list of problems - I would want this facility without needing to email wp QA team.

QA then only look at plugin when all auto tests pass - and all fails have a nice - auto picked up - justify mechanism.

We don't have any form of automated scanning mechanism. Any reports you receive from the plugin team come from a human being who read your plugin code.

  • Resolution set to maybelater
  • Status changed from new to closed

I'm going to close this as maybelater since we don't currently have any automatic plugin review processes. All manual done by humans.

There are a number of local tools you can run though, including the WordPress coding standards and there's probably more specific rules mentioned in the plugins handbook.

Adding automated scanning to take the human requirement out of the submission process is something that the plugins team along with others are looking into, and if that's implemented you'll be able to run it locally as well.
