This week: WordPress in 2020, AMP, GraphQL, create custom Gutenberg blocks and much more …
AMP is a Google standard that, in theory, was supposed to speed up websites and make them more accessible for everyone. Unfortunately, a series of lawsuits seems to prove that the Mountain View giant wanted to achieve something else too. And to think that “Don’t be evil” used to be their creed.
For Kyle Van Deusen, Elementor has always been his weapon of choice. He decided to try Gutenberg as an experiment, and as far as efficiency goes, he seems to be delighted. Still, he points out a few inconveniences concerning the block editor.
I very much like how Lesley Sim, Newsletter Glue’s co-founder, describes the development of her product with openness and transparency. It’s a good read, which might come in handy if you venture on a similar journey on your own.
rtCamp didn’t let grass grow under their feet either in 2020. They carried out many exciting projects, some of which made their way to WP Owls. I take real joy in their continuous support for the development of WordPress.
