WordPress Gutenberg: it’s not about Text Editor

I wasn’t paying much attention after the announcement of Gutenberg projects from WordPress guys back in 2010’s.

I never had any dramatic impacts by CKEditor embedded in the WordPress admin panel. I still think it’s one of the best examples of UI/UX text editors on the Web. The whole development process caught my attention due to React licensing issue that got the Internet buzzing about for couple of months, until Facebook changed it.

And then I checked this video on the future of WYSIWYG editor and Gutenberg’s impact on the WordPress ecosystem.

This is huge! The whole ecosystem will change its standards of writing plugins/themes. The concept of expanding viewports going beyond the classical monitor resolution, including wearables and other portable devices. Block architecture. Enough with spoilers – just watch the video.

WP-CLI moves to make.wordpress.org

Great news to the WordPress community and those who spend most of their time in the console. WP-CLI after reaching 1.x stable moves to make.wordpress.org. No more weird sftpd/vsftpd installations, wp-cli gets officially recognized as a community tool for upgrades that might come handy with composer bundle as we do it in Qobo for WordPress project templates.
