    Maybe worthwhile to note here that this isn’t true anymore: “Blocks must be registered from a plugin. Themes cannot register blocks.”

    Even though WordPress recommends “… pairing blocks with WordPress plugins rather than themes, because only using plugin ensures that all blocks still work when your theme changes.” it is now possible to register blocks from inside a theme.

    See documentation for –no-plugin mode here:
