Updating a Publishing Plugin to the Block Editor

Helen Hou-Sandí is certainly one of the most important people making (core) WordPress better, and she’s been doing it for years. So I take a pretty keen interest in what she’s working on. So when this post about updating a “legacy” WordPress post-meta post so that it was compatible, I knew I had to read it.

And a few months later, I finally did. 🤪

I really appreciated both the article’s style and comprehensiveness. So please give it a read if “modernizing an old plugin for Gutenberg” is somewhere on your to-do list. The article tackles a number of things I’d meant to understand better for years in an approachable way: writing compatible JavaScript and using wp-scripts are the two that leap to mind.
