Deep Dive: Gutenberg’s Create-block Scaffolding

Fabian Kaegy on Gutenberg Times Live Live

Yesterday, I was a guest on Gutenberg Times Live, discussing the inner workings of the Create Block scaffolding tool and the creation of new templates. The “WordPress/create-block” tool is a Command Line Application that facilitates the building and registering of new block plugins to help developers extend the capabilities of the WordPress block editor.

The discussion revolved around my pull request, Create block: Add support for external templates hosted on npm. I demonstrated how this proposed solution makes it easier to create new block templates.

You can watch the video on the Gutenberg Times YouTube Channel.

Congratulations Tim Wright!

I was excited (but not surprised) to see Tim Wright featured this week as Smashing Magazine’s “Person of the Week.” In his role as Director of Front End Engineering, we’ve had first-hand experience with his commitment to knowledge sharing and mentoring, especially with respect to web accessibility.

Congrats Tim, and well deserved!

In response to COVID-19, many people are working from home for the first time. Recently, I shared insights from my experience working at home and leading a remote agency with one of our clients, T-Mobile. My tips are featured alongside some other perspectives in their story, Pants or No Pants? That Is the Question! For the record, I am team “yes, pants.”

Thursday, I’ll be delivering the lightning talk “#NoStalking,” about the challenges of delivering advertising that drives revenue but also respects user privacy.

Presenting at Remote Future Summit

Brad Miller presents How to Be Successful in a Remote Job and Company at Remote Future Summit.

The best talent isn’t found in a single zip code and an international clientele requires a global perspective. Independence from traditional “brick and mortar” offices, freedom from commutes, and flexible schedules across nearly a dozen time zones mean we work when and where we’re most inspired and are available when our clients need us. At 10up, we’re advocates for remote work and know how to make it succeed for the company and the individual.
