All Things Gutenberg
Get to Know the WordPress Block Editor
The new WordPress block editor (codename “Gutenberg”) is expected to roll out November 2018 as part of the next major core WordPress update—WordPress version 5.0.
This giant leap forward is all about empowerment. No coding chops? No sweat! With the block editor, anyone can create rich content and beautiful layouts with zero HTML or CSS required.
If you’re a developer, this is your chance to go all-in on new technologies and better code. The Gutenberg project is built primarily with React, which lets WordPress developers finally use technologies like webpack, ES6, and JSX in their day-to-day work.
TL;DR: The way you create content in WordPress is changing as the platform rolls out the brand new Gutenberg editing experience. It’s a big deal, and we want to help you get ready for the change.
The new Gutenberg editing experience will bring with it some pretty major changes, but there’s no need to fret—we’ve got you covered with valuable resources so you’re ready when WordPress 5.0 makes its debut.
