Asciinema Player for WordPress 1.0.6 released, now includes Gutenberg Block
I work for a company who’s flagship product is a WordPress Page Builder, so admittedly I’m a little late to the Block Editor train. This weekend I decided to finally dig into creating Gutenberg blocks using my pet plugin, the Asciinema Player for WordPress.
Pronounced [as-kee-nuh-muh], a free and open source solution for recording terminal sessions and sharing them on the webasciinema.org
Here’s that Block, featuring the famous blinkenlights.nl Telnet ASCII Star Wars.
I originally wrote this plugin for a specific website I had planned on making, that Life got in the way of fully fleshing out. But it was a good learning experience at the time. This year, I decided to submit it to the WordPress.org plugin repository, mainly just to teach myself Subversion.
Now that I will be doing a lot more content marketing, I wanted to get more familiar with the new WordPress Editor, so I decided to take the plunge and learn how to create a Block.
I’m looking forward to writing some content about Gutenberg now, because there’s a lot to learn. And to be honest, I’m really looking forward to the new PHP Block Creation API coming in WordPress 5.3.
