In this course you will learn everything you need to know in order to create custom blocks for Gutenberg. We will start by a simple block and then we will create some more complex blocks.
The course content will go as follows:
- First and before any coding we will discuss some design guidelines that you should follow when designing a block.
- We will take a look on how your Gutenberg post is saved in your database and what happens behind the scenes in order to construct your ReactJS based UI from the content saved in the database.
- In Section 3, we will create a WordPress plugin. Inside this plugin we will register out first Gutenberg block. We will also use out webpack knowledge in order to process JS and CSS files in this plugin.
- In section 3 we will also have some bonus content. In this content we will learn how to integrate ESLint, prettier and husky for an improved workflow.
- In section 4, we will take a quick look on some stuff that you can do in your WordPress theme that will allow you to modify/add some features in the Gutenberg editor.
- In section 5 we will create a simple block. However in this simple block we will learn a lot about what we can do in a block.
- In section 6 we will use our knowledge to create a more complex block with some advanced features. These features include how to add blocks inside of other blocks, how to handle images and many more.
- Section 7 will be about creating dynamic blocks. So blocks can be static or in other words only generate some static HTML. But also they can be dynamic for example they can fetch something from the database.
- Section 8 will discover more about redux in Gutenberg. We will see how to use the existing redux stores and also create our own store.
- Finally in section 9 we will see different ways that we can follow in order to manage metadata in Gutenberg. We will manage metadata using a block. And we will also learn how to create a custom sidebar plugin and manage metadata in this sidebar.
Who this course is for:
- WordPress theme/plugin developers who are familiar with ReactJS and want to create Gutenberg blocks from scratch.
