Building Standards: The Block Theme Generation

Over the past year and a half the WordPress community has been moving towards core provided no-code (or low-code) Blocks based visual editing. With Full Site Editing site administrators can now manage their templates with Blocks.

In this presentation, Sean will cover many hacks to get your project on the right track. He will demonstrate a bare bones Block Theme, using the Create Block Theme plugin to inserts Google and custom fonts, and a few must have single-service community Block plugins for animations, custom types / fields / query loops, forms, dink sections with schema, and JetPack galleries. There's no more fussing with themes and child themes and file based templating.

WooCommerce Blocks bundled into WooCommerce core plus its plugin based development track represents the future of WooCommerce templating. We already have entirely new cart, checkout, product archive, and single product layouts.

No visual editor is perfect, bug free, and offers every single feature that one may wish for, but the community standard offers much more than given credit for. Blocks serves key purposes regarding accessibility, licensing, performance, and community standards. If you're not already an advocate, then don't miss this presentation!
