2023-05-03 Community Meeting May 3, 2023 Brooks Townsend wasmCloud Maintainer Agenda Meeting Notes wadm 0.4 release update - Taylor Last week we showed a demo of Wadm working. As usual there has been a lot of activity in the Wadm repo. 0.4.0-alpha.2 includes a few fixes to allow manifests to be less verbose We are working on fixing a few things around status, scaling and algorithms. We're also running e2e tests and updating docs. Thank you to the community for the support. 0.4 release will come after these fixes. You can run Wadm in any style - release page shows we have the archs in there - raw binary. Then in terms of packages we have a docker image, also. Canary and release tags included. Recommend running Wadm through wash app support - recently merged.
wash v0.18.0-alpha.1 will be released soon for testing
Cosmonic DevPost hackathon winners - the cool wasmCloud bits - Brooks We'd love to call out some of the submissions that came through and get them contributed as wasmCloud examples. The winner, Dog the Bug Hunter, not only created their own actors but 2 capability providers including their own custom contract for Surreal DB. Our runners up featured two examples of AI engineering in Cosmonic: Dr. Write - makes completing research papers quick and easy by automating the reference attribution process. MeXtension is an AI-powered chat bot, designed to make messaging even more easy! Imagine having in-app messaging translation! wash command structure rework RFC - Brooks wash has been around for a couple of years and has many breaking changes, We've seen feedback that the subcommands feel complex - wash control, git inventory, guest ID etc - there are a lot of poor subcommand-nested items, Subcommands are not properly contextualized. To resolve this, we put together a short RFC around reworking the command structure. This doesn't change the use of wash but we now have organization around main responsibilities - generate, build, deploy, interact; bootstrapping + managing settings; wasmCloud cache etc, Take a look for yourself at the RFC: https://github.com/wasmCloud/wash/issues/538, feel free to leave comments. Great feedback from Stephen and Bailey = thank you! Everyone is welcome to comment on this RFC, especially if you've used a tool you really like. wasmCloud Documentation structure rework - Kevin We needed to make docs more accessible - the user journey currently isn't accessible enough and there was not a clear path through documentation. We've tried to consolidate the various pieces and male sure the detail is where you need it. A progressive build up of knowledge rather than all the detail up front. The idea is this should be the experience of going from hello world to building real applications will be much better. This structure is now live! Check it out https://wasmcloud.com/docs/intro Brainstorm: How do we handle secrets in link definitions / provider configuration Check out the call recording for the brainstorm section of the call.
