GenerateBlocks

Description

Add incredible versatility to your editor without bloating it with tons of one-dimensional Gutenberg blocks. With GenerateBlocks, you can learn a handful of blocks deeply and use them to build anything.

GenerateBlocks works hand-in-hand with GeneratePress, but is built to work with any theme.

Container

Organize your content into rows and sections. The Container block is the foundation of your content, allowing you to design unique sections for your content.

Grid

Create advanced layouts with flexible grids. The Grid block gives you the ability to create any kind of layout you can imagine.

Headline

Craft text-rich content with advanced typography. Everything from headings to paragraphs – take full control of your text.

Buttons

Drive conversions with beautiful buttons.

Performance

We take performance seriously. Minimal CSS is generated only for the blocks you need, and our HTML structure is as simple as possible while allowing for maximum flexibility.

Coding standards

Built to the highest coding standards for security, stability and future compatibility.

Fully responsive

Every block comes with tablet and mobile controls, giving you total control of your responsive design.

I've used several block plugins and GenerateBlocks is among the best. If you are a GeneratePress user you understand the quality that they put into their products and GenerateBlocks is no different. Where GenerateBlocks shines is in its simplicity and stability. With only four blocks I can accomplish almost anything. The block settings are consistent and bug free. Building is intuitive and fast. I'm really impressed. Well done! Can't wait for Pro.

Great plugin, I like the simplicity of it. Please consider adding shape dividers to Container element.:)

When you compare GenerateBlocks to the other block plugins, it's easy to think it's inferior because GenerateBlocks only includes four blocks and the other plugins include a lot more. Don't be fooled! These are the only blocks you need 90% of the time and GenerateBlocks does them so so well.

I have no doubts GenerateBlocks have been deeply thought throughout to deliver us very efficient tool

I love these blocks, especially the container and section blocks. A few things for the wishlist: List blocks with custom icons. These are hard to find. Better button control. The ability to have full-width buttons, and a centered/contained width would make, say, having one button act as a great call-to-action. The headline component is genius, but I find myself wanting to use it for list items, which is why a list items block would be very nice to have. Regards, Ronald Huereca
