The first ever DOTW was on Gutenberg and seeing as how it’s official release(WP 5.0) is right around the corner… it’s time for another!
Last time we talked about Gutenberg it was shortly after Matt’s WCUS State of the Word where he focused on it heavily. This time we’re right after WCEU where he gave another Gutenberg update in his keynote. Skip to the 6:00 mark for the Gutenberg update, lasts about 10 mins before the Q&A starts.
For the TLDW check out this Gutenberg update post from wp.org.
Onto the questions, they are the same as the first DOTW! Will be interesting to see if the response has changed at all over the past 6 months.
1. Where do you sit on the Gutenberg train? Excited about it, dreading it, undecided?
2. What integrations would you like to see between our products and Gutenberg? If any.
The big change related to Gutenberg from our end since the last DOTW is that we’ve retired Upfront to focus more on compatibility with the popular themes and page builders out there, including of course the forthcoming Gutenberg. Forminator will be the first of our products to get actual integration with Gutenberg in the form of Gutenberg blocks for each element (quizzes, forms, and polls), expect that in version 1.4 due out August.
Besides that we are focusing on compatibility in the sense things won’t break when Gutenberg is added into core, but more to come on our Gutenberg integrations/compatibility in the coming month as it nears initial release.
