Gutenberg Phase 2 Friday Design Update #10

The appearance of new faces in the Github repo is so encouraging. Conversations are productive, design direction is collaborative, and the excitement is promising. If you’d like to learn more about contributing to Gutenberg, @karmatosed wrote up a great handbook page this week.

Just a reminder, today is the last call for merging PRs that will make it into WP 5.2.

Navigation block

People are being signed up for usability testing. There are already a few interviews scheduled for next week. The testing will be moderated and conducted with a prototype of the Navigation block. If you’re interested in helping, join the #research channel in slack!

Tightening up

A really cool update to the block outlines has been merged. The blue hover state is replaced with a strong grey left border. The focused state retains that strong left border and outlines the entire block.

Research & User Testing

With all the research efforts gaining momentum, a recent call for researchers went out from @tinkerbelly. If you’d like to help out, notify the researchers in the #research slack channel to get involved.

Mark your calendars for the Site-building Research “Ask Me Anything” video Q/A with @tinkerbelly and @jarahsames this coming Monday at 19:00 UTC.

Block Management

The PR is merged!

Block Directory

Wow, the comments in the post are lively! It’s great to see so many perspectives communicating. The feedback is being synthesized and thought through thoroughly. <- Say that three times fast.


Thanks for reading, staying informed, and contributing anywhere you can!
