The best way to predict your future is to create it

With Gutenberg being touted as the future of WordPress it’s time to give it a thorough test drive on my personal blog. For years I’ve used this space as a test bed for personal theme developments and woonderful plugin explorations. A test bed that’s laid dormant for a while…

First up is installing a new theme that provides me with a clean and minimal canvas, leaving the creative workflow to the flexibility of the Gutenberg tools, blocks and elements.

The Twenty Fifteen theme had served me well for over a couple years now, but it’s a little too rigid for some of the new display controls.

After a thorough search, I discovered a theme that ticks all the boxes. Boxes that seem to be less elaborate, playful and colorful as previous ones. ꜛ

We like to push the boundaries of what makes a WordPress theme capable. And with the pending release of WordPress 5.0 and Gutenberg, the new WordPress block editor, we couldn’t be more excited for the evolution of creating rich content in WordPress.

I look forward to seeing how closely this theme tracks Gutenberg’s development and release cycles. 🤞🏻

Whilst Gutenberg provides a completely new publishing experience, with a moderate learning curve, even for someone well versed in WordPress, it’s refreshing to experiment with something that finally feels like it questions the WordPress status quo. More of this…
