17 Plugins, Tutorials, And Resources For Gutenberg

The WordPress community officially has Gutenberg fever. While there has been some grumbling (and not without some cause), the blocky little editor that could, has gone mainstream. People have been building, writing, collating, and generally just adapting to the changes, and this post covers some important tutorials and resources for gutenberg.

As is usual, the WordPress community has gone wild, and has already developed loads of plugins for the new editor; we can’t possibly list them all. Besides, so many of them add pretty much the same new blocks, or very similar blocks, so I’ve decided to list only the ones that caught my eye.

For more complete lists, see the “Authority Sites and Directories” section below.

BLOCK GALLERY

BLOCK OPTIONS FOR GUTENBERG

Block Options for Gutenberg allows you to show or hide blocks based on a number of factors, including:

  • What device is being used to view the site;
  • Whether the user is logged in or not (great for calls to action, perhaps?);
  • Based on field values in Advanced Custom Fields;
  • And based on custom conditional logic you might set up yourself

 

COBLOCKS

There are already lots of plugins that aim to turn Gutenberg into a full-on page builder, but Coblocks is the one I currently have my eye on. Sure, they’ve got plenty of layout options and features, but they’re mostly kept light and simple as opposed to overly animated. They seem largely style-agnostic as well.

They don’t use JavaScript on the front end when they don’t have to, and they provide quite good controls for custom typography. Overall, I’m quite impressed.

DISABLE GUTENBERG

Disables Gutenberg. Doesn’t expire in 2022. ‘Nuff said.

GOOGLE MAPS GUTENBERG BLOCK

While this one not the only plugin that provides a map block, it’s one of the few that onlyprovides a map block. Again, does what it says, and doesn’t bloat the menus. I’ll be a fan of these single-purpose block plugins until there aren’t quite so many of those “ultimate block collection” plugins.

 

GUTENBERG MANAGER

The Gutenberg Manager plugin allows you to enable or disable Gutenberg for posts, pages, or custom post types as you see fit. Basically this allows you to use another plugin in its place for some content types (such as a proper page builder plugin), without disabling Gutenberg completely.

Those looking for flexibility in their content editing experience will want to grab this one.

 

JETPACK

Yes, that Jetpack. As of November 27th, 2018, Jetpack features a few blocks of its own, including a Markdown-enabling block, payment buttons, maps, and a full-fledged contact form.

It should be noted that some of the blocks, like many Jetpack features, require being on the Jetpack premium plan.

 

WOOCOMMERCE BLOCKS

Made by Automattic themselves, WooCommerce Blocks provides Gutenberg integration for (you guessed it!) WooCommerce. There are blocks for product grids, featured products, hand-picked products, best-selling products, hand-picked products, and much more.

Combine it with your favorite layout plugins for Gutenberg for the best effect, and you’ve got yet one more way to turn WordPress into a hand-crafted store.

Tutorials and Guides

Gutenberg wasn’t even properly out yet when people started making tutorials and resources for gutenberg. People from all over the industry wanted to be ahead of the curve, and we’re all reaping the benefits. Here are some of the best I’ve found so far:

Authority Sites and Directories

GUTENBERG HUB

Gutenberg Hub aims to be the one-stop shop for all things blocky in WordPress. They’ve got massive lists of themes and plugins, their own tutorials, and even a section for Gutenberg news. Whether you just want to learn how to get started, or go full on obsessive about a content editor (there is no shame in that), this is probably the place to start.

WP GUTENBERG

WP Gutenberg is a resource hub that focuses heavily on a listing style of content, and forgoes editorial. They have tons of plugins and Gutenberg-supporting themes listed, more than we could reasonably put in an article here on WDD.
