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 block allows you to create a post list with the following settings:
Unfortunately the plugin currently only offers choosing between posts & pages, there is not option to select other Post Types.
The plugin DOES offer the possibility of selecting any other registered post (as long as they are `’show_in_rest’ => true`), but at the moment excludes WooCommerce products specifically, as they want to build something more appropriate for them.
You can see JetPack’s Testimonials CPT shown here inside the “Kinetic Posts” block:
See it in action
There are several post design option including a post carrousel option, which is not too common:
And this is what the post carousel looks like in action. It does not seem to offer a full-width block option.

Inline text editing
Kioken offers several font styling option for the text in a given block, but this cannot be applied inline, only to the block as a whole.
The latest version of the plugin offers inline highlighing
As well as two basic but interesting new sttings: “Half opacity” and “Spaced letters“.
New side panels
Kioken also adds several new sidebars whose style settings can be applied to all blocks, not just Kioken’s own block set.
