Porting Widgets to Blocks: Feb 4, 2019

There’s been a ton of work on porting widgets to blocks since my last update! Here’s where we’re at:

✅ Completed

✏️ Work in Progress

  • Classic Widgets [13511]
    • Could use some additional testing, thoughts, and reviews.
  • Search [13583]
    • Needs a final code review and sign-off.
  • Tag Cloud [7875]
    • Getting close! Could use some more code reviews and testing.

⌨️ Needs Dev

The following iterations on existing widget blocks are “would-be-nice-to-tries”:

  • Archives [1464]
  • Recent Comments [1792]
  • Recent Posts [1594]

🗒 Notes

  • There’s an estimated ~4 weeks until this project is finished.
  • The Classic Widget [13511] is going to be moved into the “widget area Gutenberg support” project, since it impacts all of the widget screens.
  • The Meta Widget [13335] issue has been closed in lieu of adding login/logout and RSS subscription support to the navigation menu block.
  • You can track progress on GitHub: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/projects/20
