Join a discussion about Full Site Editing and the future of the Customizer

GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/’s Full Sitesite (versus network, blog) Editing project, or FSE, is progressing steadily, and while there’s much more to do, the core roadmap plans for FSE to be introduced into WordPress coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. later in 2020.

With Full Site Editing on the way, what does the future hold for the CustomizerCustomizer Tool built into WordPress core that hooks into most modern themes. You can use it to preview and modify many of your site’s appearance settings. and for the core Customize component?

At 16:00 UTC Thursday, May 28, we’ll start to tackle this broad question with an hour of discussion in the #core-customize WordPress SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. channel that will include maintainers of the Customize component, members of the Gutenberg team, and you!

The primary focus of the discussion will be about contributing to the Customizer and to Gutenberg, guided by these questions:

  • First, a recap: What are the goals of the Full Site Editing project?
  • What can be done in the Customize component to help pave the way in core for Full Site Editing?
  • How can developers familiar with the Customizer best apply their experience to assist the Gutenberg team?
  • What’s the best use of time within Customize component for non-Gutenberg tasks? Is it worth patching bugs or pursuing enhancements?

Lastly, we’ll try to leave some time for an open floor.

If you have any questions about this discussion, or if you can’t attend but would like to add something to the agenda, please leave a comment. We’ll get to as many as we can.

I hope you can join us!
