Status of the paragon.alpha migration.

Felipe Montoya

Not a presentation, but more an inquiry of what is the current status of this to understand if this might be available for the Quince release or what needs to be worked on before it is available.

  • It’s moving along, but unlikely to make it into the Quince release: even if it makes it into paragon@master, in addition to a new Paragon release, it will require all MFEs to actually start using it. If we want it in the R release, we need an epic owner for it, and contributors.

    • Brian Smith has tentatively offered to lead the epic once OEP-58 completes

    • Felipe Montoya graciously offered resources for the MFE upgrade effort

MFE upgrades


  • The formatjs PR to frontend-build just merged!

  • React 17 and react-router-v6 are moving along

    • frontend-app-learning still pending

    • react-router-v6 issues with some MFES and Tutor; Brian Smith notes that such PRs should be tested against Tutor before merging
