Matt Mullenweg and Matías Ventura have joined WordCamp Europe, to talk about what is happening with Project Gutenberg.

"For me, 2020 was the year when it really felt like people recognised the vision of Gutenberg from four or five years ago, when it was still very much abstract.


Ventura, in turn, highlighted how patterns have changed web design, making it accessible to users.

"It may have originally been a smaller part of our roadmap, but now it's becoming a focal point, especially because it allows world-class designers to provide great starting points for users, and they learn design as they interact with themes. I think it opens up a chapter where people will be able to experiment with things that were hidden in WordPress such as more advanced things like queries and loops that we can now implement through blocks."


Mullenweg also mentioned how things that would previously have required a fairly experienced WordPress developer can now be done with just a few clicks. This can be done by anyone regardless of their level of experience.

"It's not code - it's like expanding the accessibility layers of what people are able to do with WordPress.


We have known this trend for years, although it mainly applies to other builders such as Elementor whether a great set CrocoblockGutenberg is still in its early stages of development, but I'm sure in time it will be possible to use it to quickly create complex services without the need for coding. Gutenberg is just entering this phase of development, but I'm confident that in time it will be possible to use it to quickly create complex sites without the need for coding.

Mullenweg and Ventura also showed a new "Gutenberg highlight" video, which covers the current and new features we will soon find in the blockchain editor. Gutenberg is "getting ready to become a page builder". Watch the video below because it allows us to rediscover the editor, better understand it and make better use of its current and future capabilities.

The video demonstrates new design features for various blocks, including live previews, dragging media into containers, inline clipping without leaving the editor, a template editor, duotone image filters, more navigation customisation options, list view browser enhancements and a new global style design to be introduced soon.

Every time I follow this kind of information I wonder to what extent Gutenberg will pull users away from other wizards. This process is already underway, and will accelerate with each new innovation that makes things easier and more efficient.

A year ago I was basing 100% practically on Elementor, today I only use it where Gutenberg can't cope.
