Last night the 2nd meeting of the Bend WordPress Meetup took place at the beautiful OSU Cascades Campus. A nice crowd of friendly folk attended to hear me chat about Gutenberg! As promised, here are the slides from last night, along with some helpful links that came up during the talk and Q&A at the end.
Great Blog Posts To Read
Here are the blog posts that I think you all should give a read based off of our conversation last night:
- ma.tt – We Called It Gutenberg For A Reason
- Fluffy and Flakey – Gutenberg Posts aren't HTML
- Gutenberg Docs!
The Giphy Example Block
If you are interested in checking out the code used in the "How To Build a Block" part of the talk, you can find it up on GitHub. Pull Requests welcomed. And of course, here is my favorite gif from last nights talk:
Based off some of the questions, here are some issues in the Gutenberg repository to check out:
- Custom Post Types in Gutenberg
- Dynamic Reusable Blocks
- Supporting Metaboxes
- And I created a new issue this morning around enabling blocks on only certain post types.
Again big thanks for spending your Tuesday evening with me… and I encourage you all to install Gutenberg on a site and use it to write real content if you can. Please do join in the discussion on the project in the #core-editor Slack channel, or peruse the GitHub issue list and chime in on all the things.
