Since WordPress 5.0 our developers have found themselves spending a lot of time enabling new Gutenberg features for older WordPress projects. In this post our WordPress Engineer Charlie describes WordPress development best practice on how you can quickly get your older WordPress websites ready for Gutenberg.
At Make Do we needed a tool that would let us build our project assets dynamically on the server (Sass, JS, etc) and continuously deploy to our production and staging environments without any headaches for our engineers.
We’ve been working with the new WordPress editor ‘Gutenberg’ for a while now and one of the key components to this has been the creation of a ‘boilerplate’ or ‘starter kit’ that helps our team to quickly create new WordPress Blocks.
One year ago the Make Do team hosted the FrontEndNorth conference at the City Hall in Sheffield and welcomed over 200 people from all over the world into our hands to view sessions from experts in our industry talk about everything front-end!
WordPress 5.0 and the new block-based Gutenberg editor is finally being released today! (…that’s the 6th of December 2018). But how did we get here? How did we get to the release of this all-new revolutionary change to WordPress? Let’s take a quick look.
Large organisations that deliver multiple products and services to varying audiences have historically always had large and complex web presence. For example an NHS service, such as a hospital may deliver services from podiatry to neurology and everything in-between.
Gutenberg is the new editor experience from WordPress, and it is great! It lets you quickly build and reorder a page structure with using content ‘blocks’ rather than just standard text.
The somewhat wonderful UK Health Camp is back and happening in Manchester on Saturday 8th September. Best of all, the Make Do team will be there and we’re very pleased to announce that we are the GOLD sponsor for the event!
Are you ready for the most significant change to WordPress since, well, probably ever? If you upgraded to the latest WordPress 4.9.8 this week then you should have been presented with the “Try Gutenberg” prompt.
It’s been said that new technology is common, but new thinking is rare. It’s often hard to find time to truly think, reflect and learn and that’s one of the main reasons Make Do runs FrontEndNorth.
The final video from FrontEndNorth 2018 is here! It’s the wonderful Craig Burgess with ‘Marty McFly Has A Lot To Answer For’.
Our almost-last-video from the FrontEndNorth 2018 Conference is from Rich Higgins who goes into some great detail about the concept of ‘Automating Critical CSS’.
