    You and I are of very similar mindsets to the point of it being scary.

    I don't have strong opinions regarding if it is ready for use with a typical PHP-based frontend, but for a use-case similar to our specific set of circumstances, I wouldn't recommend. It's too bad, really, because we actually like the UI.

    Hi all,

    I wrote this after my team hit a wall while trying to use the new WordPress Gutenberg editor. We build ReactJS sites that consume data from WP REST APIs, and as Gutenberg works now, it bundles all block data into a single HTML content string - which is difficult, if not stupid, to parse into React components on the frontend.

    Hope you find it interesting!

    Wow, I may be the lone ranger here but I love it and I think it's overdue. Literally zero complaints from me and I've been using it for months through the beta program.

    I have been in beta for a month or two and I LOVE it. Big fan of the dark UI over here. No real problems since earlier on in the beta except for a slight issue with the font weight rendering.

    I like it and I'm not a fan of Material Design. It seems minimal, fresh, and out of the way. The subtle color changes of the tab bar are nice, too.

    I've actually started to do this as well, I think it provides a good parity between small and large screen sizes. But, I don't like that they haven't constrained their header width at all. Bothers me when content is restricted and headers / footers are not.

    Well, even fetching that initial content for social media cards before returning a response from the server will introduce hundreds of milliseconds of latency, right?
