Block based Themes are coming to WordPress sooner or later and we just published the first “beta” release of our Full Site Editing Starter Theme.
If you see yourself as an early adopter who likes to get his/her hands dirty feel free to generate a copy via the Theme Generator: https://them.es/starter-fse
The source code is licensed under GPLv2 and has been published on GitHub.
Full Site Editing is a collection of features that allow to fully customize a WordPress site via a new site editor. Overall the Full Site Editing experience using block based Themes looks promising and already works pretty well but you need to be aware that not all features are final and that bugs will appear during development.
At the current state this Starter Theme is not recommended for production sites. Please use it at your own risk and provide technical feedback to the Gutenberg team if possible!
One more thing: Block based features are still in development and have not yet been fully integrated in WordPress core. In order to enable the Site editor you need to install the Gutenberg Plugin on your site.
Over the last couple of months we’ve been working hard on the latest addition to our product line – a complete billing suite which integrates seamlessly into WordPress – and we’re happy to announce that the free version has been shipped to the WordPress Plugin directory

If you are working as a Freelancer or are responsible for Accounting and Billing in a small agency and are looking for an easy-to-use, future-proof PbD* solution to create Invoices, Quotes and basic Accounting records, go on and give Billy a try.
*Privacy by Design: Billy posts are privately published, by default.
The plugin will work with any modern WordPress theme that supports the Block editor.
Important notice: The Grunt config in our Starter Themes got replaced by gulp + webpack in the latest releases.
Gulp is quite similar to Grunt and allows to automate tasks like SASS > CSS compilation.
According to this blog post, Bootstrap v3 will not receive security updates anymore and that’s why the Bootstrap 3 download option has been marked as deprecated and will be removed shortly. Once Bootstrap v5 is published, this new version will become our default Starter Theme and Bootstrap v4 will become an optional download.
jQuery was very useful a while ago but browser support for modern web standards has improved a lot and most JS frameworks started to drop any external dependencies in favor of plain/vanilla JS.
Reducing the loading time of web applications and minimizing HTTP requests is one of the main goals of many developers. And since jQuery is an external library which needs to be downloaded first, avoiding it (if possible) makes a lot of sense.
