Back in April I was developing a prototype plugin called oik-block that contained a number of prototype Gutenberg blocks plus a whole load of code that helped me to form opinions regarding Gutenberg’s compatibility with my sites and to estimate the code of migrating to Gutenberg and/or WordPress 5.0. I’ve recently forked oik-block to create a new plugin called oik-blocks. Here’s an update.
There are now two oik plugins developed for Gutenberg.
oik-block no longer contains any blocks. Since v0.1.0-alpha-20181128 it only contains the logic that helps you form Gutenberg compatibility opinions. It’s available from bobbingwide/oik-block.
oik-blocks is the plugin that contains the prototype Gutenberg blocks. Since v0.1.0-alpha-20181128 it only contains blocks. There are 11 of them.
They’re still mostly prototype code but I’m happy enough with them to be using two of them in this post; CSV and Countdown.
So where am I in my evaluation of Gutenberg’s compatibility with my content? tl;dr No further forward. See my April post.
So where’s WordPress 5.0? tl;dr TBD.
5.0 RC1 was released but there are no dates for any further Release Candidates. Let’s leave them to it eh?
Fuck me this is getting slower and slower!
