Building blocks without writing Javascript using Advanced Custom Fields

Building blocks without writing Javascript using Advanced Custom Fields

When the new block-based editor was released earlier this year, WordPress development was about to get a lot harder. Instead of the low barrier to entry PHP we are used too, along came React and JavaScript based development practices.

How are “traditional” developers like me supposed to keep up? Well, fear not as I will show you in this talk the ways in which I build WordPress sites, using the block editor, developing custom blocks which meet the clients’ needs.

I outline how we standardised our block-based development into a plugin which we use on many of the sites we build today.
