WPTavern: Conceptual Ideas on How the Customizer Could Integrate With Gutenberg

WPTavern: Conceptual Ideas on How the Customizer Could Integrate With Gutenberg

While the initial focus of Gutenberg is the editor, the second focus is the Customization experience in WordPress. Mel Choyce, Product Designer at Automattic, recently spoke at LoopConf, on the past, present, and future of the customizer.

Choyce begins the presentation by describing when and how the customizer was added to WordPress. Fun fact, the customizer or what was known as the Theme Customizer at the time, was added to WordPress 3.4 “Green” in June 2012.

The session continues with Choyce showcasing new features and enhancements that have been made to the customizer since 2012. Near the 23 minute mark, Choyce shows conceptual images of what the customization experience could be like when implemented with Gutenberg.

In the experimental images, you can see options to choose page templates or layouts, live previewing changes to blocks, global site styles, and a standard set of user interface patterns. The ideas presented are concepts and likely to change.

Because the session was recorded with a picture-in-picture, I’m not able to provide high quality screen captures of the conceptual images. To see those items in detail, I recommend viewing the video in full-screen 1080p. You can full all of the LoopConf sessions for free via their YouTube channel.
