This week: Code review, interview with Joost de Valk, some useful plugins for Gutenberg blocks, and much more.
I fully agree with
Max Denysenko, who, in his excellent article, claims that Code Review is essential, time-saving, and at the same time educational.
Conditional Blocks is a plugin that allows you to show blocks conditionally (the name is pretty self-explanatory). I admit I haven’t heard of it before, but it seems promising. Its potential might be even more significant, especially in connection with Full Site Editing.
Here’s a nice interview with
Joost de Valk about the origins of the Yoast SEO plugin.
10up has just published a plugin with a telling name – Convert to Blocks. It converts the content created in Tiny MCE into blocks.
WP Tavern joined the podcasting community with their WP Tavern Jukebox. Nathan Wrigley hosted his first guest – Josepha Haden Chomphosa.
In his podcast,
Lee Matthew Jackson tells us why his agency is also starting to look for solutions other than WordPress.
Peter Tasker from Delicious Brains describes how cURL exactly works in WP.
Joe Casabona considers when it is better to be in full control of the service and when to find a service that does it for you.
Scott Anderson from WebDevStudios suggests why it’s worth using Cloudflare. I use it too and appreciate it a lot, so I agree wholeheartedly.
Matt Watson of Wholesome Code continues the series of tutorials on Gutenberg – this time, he investigates the sidebar.
Leonardo Losoviz describes the benefits of monorepo and how it influenced the maintenance of his project.
I highly recommend
Kamil Ruczyński‘s set of valuable tips on unit testing.
Caldera Forms is one of the most esteemed form-building plugins. Unfortunately, the owners (Ninja Forms) concluded that there is no point developing the plugin when they offer an almost identical one. As a result, Caldera Forms will be retired at the end of the year.
A strong stance from
