WordPress Gutenberg is the new way we will all be editing and publishing content to WordPress. If you are still using old methods to add custom content to WordPress you should really take a look at Gutenberg, as there are more than a few changes.
What Gutenberg Replaces
In WordPress it currently requires shortcodes, embeds, widgets, post formats, custom post types, theme options, meta-boxes, and other formatting elements. Gutenberg replaces these for one single editor without development of these elements.
WordPress Gutenberg Blocks
In the soon to be past, the editor was a simple top to bottom editor with no room for custom items like buttons. Unless you used shortcodes in the editor that’s all you had to work with. Now with Blocks in Gutenberg you can add a myriad of items that enhance you content and readers experience.
