I spoke at WordCamp Brisbane last weekend – my first WordCamp! I chose Brisbane as it seems like the strongest community in my part of the world. It didn’t disappoint – the 2019 event broke records as the biggest #WCBNE ever!
Inside Gutenberg there’s a rich library of components that you can use to build the custom block your site needs, dashboard interfaces in wp-admin, and more. You can even use these packages outside WordPress – the possibilities are endless!
Demo – Page Soundtrack
To demo this, I decided to invest some of my spare time in building something fun that I might use. The idea was to add a soundtrack to blog posts and pages.
When writing a post, you add loops to the page. When the user is reading (scrolling) through the page, it will automatically sync and crossfade between the loops, a bit like a DJ.
The two blocks – a loop block and a play button – use Gutenberg components to allow the author to configure things like loop settings, and the page tempo. Have a play with it!
