What’s New With Kernl – November 2020

As we enter the holiday season here in the US work on Kernl slows down. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t get some great stuff done this month. Let’s dive in!

Features, Bug Fixes, Infrastructure

  • Site Health Worker – In the beginning, Kernl’s WordPress Site Health service used a simple cron job to run TTFB and response time tests against sites. The cron job was starting to get overwhelmed so it was refactored to use a queue based pub/sub model. The benefit here is that we can scale site health workers horizontally in the future as usage goes up.
  • Push-to-build multi-commit, multi-branch bug – In the very early days of Kernl we made the naive assumption that multi-commit pushes would contain commits only from one branch. This caused an issue where building from pushes didn’t work in some instances. This has been resolved.
  • Wildcard domain validation for licenses – The license management tool now supports wildcard domain validation. (ex: *.kernl.us)
  • /v2/license updates – The /v2/license endpoints now return the type of item the license is attached to (plugin, theme, null).

That’s it for this month! I hope everyone has a great December.
