ACF 5.8 – Introducing ACF Blocks for Gutenberg

There has been a lot of excitement surrounding Gutenberg, the new block-based WordPress editing experience. One of its most compelling features is the ability for developers to create their own custom block types. This opens up an endless array of possibilities for customization.

There’s just one little problem. Creating custom blocks is extremely complicated. How complicated? Well, even a simple testimonials block requires a massive amount of code.

.. We believe that ACF Blocks is one of the more important features ever added to our plugin. It levels the playing field and allows more developers to take advantage of Gutenberg’s key feature.
