Gutenberg Phase 2 Friday Design Update #40

I missed last Friday’s update, so let’s see if I can catch up on everything related to Gutenberg design today. Happy Friday!

Full-site editing

There’s a new Focus page in the Design Handbook dedicated to full-site editing. This will be updated as progress happens, but the design tasks will happen on GitHub.

A couple of design explorations in the form of prototypes were shared in slack earlier this week by @shaunandrews. These prototypes are to encourage thinking around full-site editing and are not final solutions.


Block Directory

As many of you know, the Block Directory interaction is new to the Gutenberg plugin which allows the installation of single-block plugins directly from within Gutenberg. It’s pretty amazing. There’s a new Focus page for this as well in the Design Handbook.

Reading update

There was a recent post by @melchoyce on Blocks, Patterns, and Layouts. This post helps convey some terminology and how the Gutenberg puzzle fits together.


Get involved

Now’s a great time to get involved. While the work on this project is intense, it’s always important to glean new perspectives from other WordPress users and community members. Just drop into any of the links provided above to read up on the details and contribute.

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