Custom Gutenberg Blocks

Love it or hate it – WordPress’ Gutenberg is here to stay. I’ve spent quite a few hours exploring different methods of developing with Gutenberg and learning to work with it as a user. I’ve definitely become a fan.

As a user, I can pretty easily drop in content and customize it in a consistent manner, reducing the amount of potential typo bugs and just all around ensuring I put the content on the page in a consistent manner.

As a developer, I can create what surmounts to be a custom page builder for my clients without the bloat and overhead that comes from all of the page builders out there. I’ve developed a process that I’m quite happy with that uses a combination of a Bootstrap row/column plugin and Advanced Custom Fields to provide clients with an excellent interface for their websites. So far, they have all been extremely happy with it.
