Weex

18 Oct 2017

Weex is a framework for building Mobile cross-platform high-performance UI.

Weex has been incubating since 2016-11-30.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

1. Move the whole workflow and infra into Apache (not the codebase only).
2. Develop more contributors and committers.
3. More releases while in Incubator.
4. Improve the developer's activity in JIRA and mailing list.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

No.

How has the community developed since the last report?

• We voted two new committers: gurisxie, Hanks
• Our Github has growth contributors (131), forks (760), watchers (296)
and stars (5522)
• We have encouraged people to discuss more in the JIRA and dev mailing
list. Up to now, 76 issues have been reported on JIRA and 37 of them are
resolved or closed.
• WebSite Trends Month Active, PV(393698), UV(64096), IP(53712), New
Unique Visitor(36155) , Session(103184)

How has the project developed since the last report?

• 21 authors have pushed 284 commits to master and 285 commits to all branches since last month.
• We are replacing Facebook's Yoga with Google's FlexboxLayout for our layout system.
• Several new features including  pseudo-class,  box-shadow in Android,
3d rotate were proposed and developed under review.

    Comments: The community still learning the Apache Way. Also we have to work on the diversity.
    But we make progress. An additional active Mentor would be good.

Weex is a framework for building Mobile cross-platform high performance UI.

Weex has been incubating since 2016-11-30.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

 1. Move the whole workflow and infra into Apache (not the codebase only).
 2. Develop more contributors and committers.
 3. First Release while in Incubator.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

 We are worried that only 1 mentor is actively helping us, as this will put
 more burden on the rest of the Incubator to approve our releases.
 Especially, most of active committers are not good at dealing with
 license-related problem.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 * We voted in 3 new committer:TianYi Ma, Tancy and HaiBo Song.
 * There are 90+ new forks and 700+ new stars since last report.
 * We have encouraged people to discuss more in the JIRA and dev
    mail list. Up to now, 30 issues are reported on JIRA and 25 of them
     are resovled.
 * We have redirect github's mails to the commits mail list to have a
     clear overview of our activity  in the dev mail list.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 * We are trying to release 0.12 this month. Both two RCs were failed due
   to the license issue. This is major issue of project.

    Comments: Technical development and sheer momentum is still very high,
    and no concerns in that area. The move of GitHUb notifications to
    commits@ makes dev@ a more pleasant space. But I still have concerns that
    a lot of discussions of what to do happens in office or other channels.

    Comments: The Shepherd's comments fully resonate with how I feel. The
    progress in 'getting it' is slow, and I have also asked privately how
    people know what to work on, as I suspect that this is happening at
    work, conf calls, or other means. I have been considering asking the
    IPMC to put the code repository in read-only to get people to wake up.
    There is a release attempt going on right now, and that has triggered a
    little bit more open communications, but it is far from acceptable. Dev
    work is remarkably strong, but community development is weak, which I
    see as signs of a corporate-driven project.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:

 ptgoetz: The Weex community has shown some friction against adopting the
          Apache Way. Luckily there is one highly engaged mentor very actively
          nudging the community in the right direction. My concern is that
          other mentors have not engaged (no sign-offs to date), and if the
          primary mentor disappears for any length of time it could pose a
          problem. I'd like to see at least one more engaged mentor for a
          podling trying to develop its initial Apache "sea legs."

 johndament: The amount of private list email vs dev list email is a bit
             concerning.  Niclas has been doing a great job helping the
             podling move along, but without major changes I suspect
             it will be difficult for them to progress forward.

    Comments:

      The project from a technical point of view is doing well. I am trying
      to get the participants really grok TheApacheWay, as there is still too
      much "corporate think" in the project, and things are done seemingly
      randomly. The GitHub workflow is also something that I worry about,
      since it makes the mailing list look like a commit log and not really a
      community discussion forum. There is some who listens and trying to get
      their colleagues to understand. This doesn't seem to be a language
      (Chinese) issue as much as a GitHub culture issue. These guys love
      GitHub issues and pull requests. But I am hopeful we will get there.

 3. Project maillist & JIRA have been activated &  we have volunteer JIRA
    administrator. Our setup issue on JIRA[1]

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

 * Code repository need be set up.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 * Weex Github star number was reached 10k on December 21.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Since our Apache code repository haven’t been setup, the project have not
 been developed in Apache Way yet. But our pre-Apache development process
 are ongoing. Several bugs have been fixed and some new features have been
 added (detail of information [2]). We will migrate code to Apache repo as
 soon as possible.

 Niclas Hedhman:

   The development on the previous GitHub project is progressing at high
   speed. But we have an understanding that moving to ASF repos is of the
   highest importance for the next month.
