Gutenberg Embed

This post was written using the Gutenberg editor in WordPress 5.0. I used the editor to embed to embed this YouTube video. Below is the markup that is generated by the editor.

<!-- wp:core-embed/youtube {"url":"","type":"video","providerNameSlug":"youtube","className":"wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"} --><figure class="wp-block-embed-youtube wp-block-embed is-type-video is-provider-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"></div></figure><!-- /wp:core-embed/youtube -->

    There are some technical challenges to moving from WordPress to Grav. The importer breaks for certain post types and will bog down if the number of imported posts are large (this blog has over 4000).

    I switched over to Gutenberg recently and I have to admit that it took some time to get used to. I seem to have gotten the hang of it, but I haven't used all of the features. What's your impression?

      For me, the block "thinking" is a challenge. I write ALL of my post in Markdown in a distractions free text editor, Byword. When I am done writing, I copy paste the Markdown into the WordPress text editor. I never use the visual editor. Gutenberg throws a monkey wrench in that workflow. It seems to be designed to compete with Wix and Medium and I think it's less about blogging and more about page creation.

        I get what you mean. I used the blogging CMS Ghost for a while. It's built to use with markdown and it's a delight to use. It's all about blogging (and only that), but for me there was one major problem: it lacks something like WordPress Reader, which is a great source of traffic for me.

          I agree. The WordPress reader is a great source of traffic.

      I do not user the WordPress visual editor. I write all my content in markdown. I do not need a block editor and it makes me less productive. I just want to blog. I don't need a competitor to Wix, Squarespace and Medium. I never like the Medium editor. I may have to consider a move to Grav or Ghost.

        I have never heard about Grav, but it looks very appealing. I'll check it out. Perhaps I'll use it for another blog/project. Thanks for the tip.
