I’ve been reading articles on WPTavern regarding Gutenberg. Gutenberg is a plugin which changed the text editor into a text block editor. It’ll be a part of the core WordPress install for WordPress 5.0.
I’ve been using Gutenberg on my portfolio site and a few of my parody sites (https://rose-city.net/live) and I like it. When I first tried it, there were a lot of bugs. The plugin was not meant to be used on live sites yet when I installed it. Over time I’ve watched it improve and I think it will help make posting easier for people who may not be as tech savvy with WP. It definitely changed the Text Editor to something similar to Medium.com.
I hope that when they do roll it out with WP 5.0, the option to switch to the Classic Editor will remain. I like adding my own codes.
