In this casual conversation, we discuss block variations and how you can use them to enhance the editing experience in WordPress. An often overlooked feature, variations are a great way to extend existing blocks and can be as simple or complex as you like. Many WordPress Core blocks you use daily are variations!
To kick off the discussion, we provide a brief overview of what variations are and how they work. Ryan Welcher then shares how he built the Advanced Query Loop plugin and why he opted for a variation of the Query block instead of building a custom block from scratch.
