Kona – Instagram Feed for Gutenberg

A fairly straightforward and light-weight block to add an instagram feed. If need want extra options & settings please check other options, such as the block offered by Ghost Kit.

I quite like to, when you first insert it, the block provides a link right there to go get a IG token:

Simple Shortcode Block

This simple plugin will allow you to preview the content of your shortcode in the backend

What does it look like in the backend?

This is what it looks like in the backend

What happens if you remove the plugin?

The block will disappear from the frontend and you will get this message in the backend. It would be nice if it could fallback to the default “Shortcode” block.

Meow Gallery (+ Gutenberg Gallery Block)

A well thought out plugin that offers several layout options, including Masonry. It is practical and very well thought out, you can tell it was a photographer who built it. It is also important to note that this plugin works both as a Gutenberg block and with the classic “shortcode” gallery.

Gutenberg Blocks Templates (design library)

This is one of my favorite Gutenberg plugins (meta-plugins?) and a perfect example two of its main paradigms: Building on each other’s work (standards) and Avoiding lock in effect (content integrity).

What his plugin offers is pret-a-porter set of layouts, using the Gutenberg’s default blocks. This makes it A LOT easier to build layouts, get to know new blocks and even to get inspiration on what to build.

One of the beauties of this plugin is that it only works as a “wizard” to create your page. Once your layout is ready you can delete it, as it does not add any functionality and is only using the default blocks.

I am thinking that, if built correctly, a plugin like this could allow other plugins to “add” their blocks to it, creating new layouts with the newly installed sets of blocks.

This way it would be exponentially simpler to become familiar with new sets of blocks and create layouts using them in the way their author conceived them.
