I’ve prepared a mild release for Tabor, as part of the first round of WordPress 5.0 updates to my theme catalog at ThemeBeans. Tabor v1.6.0 is scheduled for release on Tuesday, November 20th, 2018 . A week before WordPress 5.0 is launching to the public. ?
It’s no secret that I’m a huge proponent of Gutenberg, the new block editor to be released next month in WordPress 5.0. Ever since WordCamp US last year, I’ve been deep into all things Gutenberg, wrapping my head around block development and working on supporting the new editor in all my themes.
Over the weekend, I set up a new, highly interactive demo of one of my latest Gutenberg-inspired projects, CoBlocks. There’s a lot of controversy surrounding Gutenberg, so I wanted to shine a little light on how third party blocks can leverage the new editor and bring some really powerful editing capabilities to WordPress.
Tabor has received quite a lot of updates over the past couple of weeks, mostly surrounding Gutenberg. In fact, over the last month I’ve pushed an update nearly every week! So here’s the latest on what’s new with Tabor.
There’s no better time to start exploring how each of our WordPress themes will interface with Gutenberg. So to help folks level-up their themes to support the new WordPress block editor, I built the Block Unit Test WordPress plugin.
I’m writing a number of articles outlining the tricks the trade I’m learning while developing Gutenberg-ready WordPress themes. Up next is this guide on supporting Gutenberg’s new alignment features. Woot!
As you’ve probably been well aware of, I’ve been living and breathing all things Gutenberg since attending WordCamp US last year. And while I have a few irons in the fire, with a change as profound as the new block editor, there’s not a better time to dive in and continue exploring… cue CoBlocks!
Gutenberg, the soon-to-be block editor for WordPress, has a nifty color palette used throughout many blocks which allow users to set custom colors. While this sort of empowerment is quite useful, I can think of a few reasons why folks would want to limit the styling capabilities of Gutenberg.
Gutenberg, the upcoming block editor for WordPress, has a built-in color palette that lets users stylize content rather easily. While WordPress themes can override them and provide “themed” color palettes, I thought it would be interesting to load a custom color value from the WordPress Customizer within Gutenberg color palettes.
While there is no shortage of articles published about adding general support for a theme’s color palette within the Gutenberg editor, I’m going to focus on the color class changes deployed in Gutenberg 2.8.
