Hello WordPress, My Old Friend
After just over a year on Hugo I’ve migrated this site back to WordPress.
It wasn’t an easy decision to do so. The truth is, I really liked the workflow I had been using for Hugo and the platform itself was nearly perfect for my uses. That said, technology alone wa…
Welcome back Chris! We’re glad to have you.
There are things I like about Hugo but I have so many posts on either of my sites that just looking at the post/taxonomy management aspect alone was enough to make me reconsider the decision to switch before I started the work.
There has been an increase in developer resources around Gutenberg. We collected quite a few here. We’ll update along the way.
This resource from Gutenberg Times looks like it might be a great place to begin with Gutenberg development.
Development note: for the purposes of being able to remember gotchas when developing, I’ve added this development note with this bookmark.
While I’m not sure if this is a function of Gutenberg or not, I needed to manually input the information for the post name but not post excerpt, and I needed to manually input the site name. All of this applies when attempting to parse the information from the URL, which uses the “Parse This” portion of the Post Kinds plugin. This may mean something to look at specifically when migrating that plugin.
The official React accessibility documentation. May as well start from the source.
Put simply, the new block editor makes creating content easier. What might not feel so easy, however, is bringing a complex enterprise site over to Gutenberg for the first time. Never fear: that’s where this webinar comes in. In this dev-centered presentation, our friends at Reaktiv will walk you through each step of making the transition using real-life examples from Xbox, Atlassian, and more.
In this webinar, you will:
* Study real-life Gutenberg use cases from Xbox, Atlassian, and others
* See examples of when to use core blocks, 3rd-party block libraries, or custom blocks
* Learn how to plan for dependencies and ensure backwards compatibility
* Get tips on managing the human element (think buy-in, usability, and training)
* Participate in a live Q&A with Reaktiv’s Gutenberg experts
I’m slowly surely moving forward with Gutenberg, and this event seems like a perfect way to continue diving in.
I’m looking forward to it.
