Gutenberg is nice for many who develop with JavaScript as a result of it’s principally written in JavaScript. So in case you are a JavaScript developer, Gutenberg opens the door in WordPress to construct extra elaborate and complicated UI options, blocks, and so forth. Then again, WordPress builders specializing in PHP-based improvement initially are at an obstacle with Gutenberg. To get on board, aspiring Gutenberg builders might want to study “deeply” about JavaScript and JS-based tooling and methods. It’s a little bit of a studying curve, to be trustworthy.
