    Simon Kraft: Der WP Block Editor – WordPress 5.0 und das Gutenberg Projekt

    WordPress Meetup NürnbergSpeaker: Simon Kraft

    November 18, 2018 — Ereignisse werfen ihre Schatten voraus. Sollte alles nach Plan verlaufen bringt der November gravierende sowie einschneidende Neuerungen für das WordPress Ökosystem. Für den 27.(19.) November 2018 ist die Veröffentlichung von WordPress 5.0 angekündigt, welches die Einführung eines neuen, React basierten, Inhaltseditors namens Gutenberg mit sich bringt. Über Letzteren wird Simon Kraft, Web-Entwickler aus Stuttgart, sprechen. Er unternimmt einen kleinen Ausflug in die Tiefen des neuen Block-basierten Editors. Er erläutert dabei das Konzept der neuen Inhaltsblöcke, zeigt was bei der Umstellung und Anpassung bestehender Inhalte an Gutenberg zu beachten ist und geht abschließend auf die, während dessen Entwicklung, entstandenen Kontroversen ein. Das Projekt Gutenberg findet mit der Veröffentlichung von WordPress 5.0 jedoch nicht seinen Abschluss. Vielmehr handelt es sich dabei nur um die Erste von vier Phasen, im Zuge derer dessen Konzepte noch tiefer mit Funktion und Antlitz von WordPress verwoben werden sollen.
