A block suite that
includes claims certainly includes custom queries for post lists and which does extend Gutenberg in two interesting ways: custom inline color and fonts.
This is a suite of blocks, like many others, but I am particularly interested in the “Kinetic Posts” Block.

This plugin suite also extends Gutenberg’s basic text editing features by adding the possibility to edit part of the text in a given block.
You can then select the color, opacity, letter spacing and text transform for that part of the text only:

I can also change opacity if I want.
This plugins also allows your to change the typography of any block inside the editor, choosing from a Google Fonts list, as well as adjusting size, line height, letter spacing and more.
