Joost de Valk has started a conversation about developers testing their work with other developers’ plugins in Post Status Slack. Joost wants to take on what he calls an “integration problem:”

“Every integration with another plugin we [at Yoast] add forces us to test the basic features of that plugin, with our plugin running, to see if we don’t break that plugin. So we’re testing their feature set. Other plugins do the same with us… I know of WooCommerce and Jetpack doing this with us to some extent. This feels incredibly wasteful.”

If you are a developer and a Post Status member, I suggest you check out his proposal and the responses so far. This is a very interesting line of thinking about developer cooperation. 🀝
