Front-end standards group

(Redirected from Frontend standards group)

Project / workboard[edit]

Members of the Front-end Standards Group surface front-end development topics from their respective Wikimedia Foundation teams in order to find common solutions. Much of this group's work is in the Phabricator Front-end standards workboard. Every interested Foundation front-end developer is welcome to join the bi-weekly Vue.js and general editions of the meeting.

If you like to raise attention about a specific topic to a forthcoming meeting, please add it to the group's Etherpad or share it in the internal #front-end Slack channel.

For general questions around the group's activities or to join please contact Volker Eckl <>.
