This addon replaces the layout and the layout-grid fields of Cockpit CMS with a visual block editor.
I always liked the data structure of the core layout field, but the visual experience wasn’t very intuitive. Also editing everything in modals didn’t feel right and after each try I stopped using it.
So, with the Gutenberg block editor from WordPress in mind, I started to rewrite the layout field and it worked pretty well in my first tests.
It should be compatible with these addons:
It shares nearly the same data structure with the core layout field. So if you don’t like the block editor, just remove this addon and continue working with the core field.
The current development state is a draft and you will see some
console.log() output in your browser console.
I need feedback
Because I don’t like editing content in modals, I never used the layout field before and I’m not familiar with all possible use cases. So please report bugs and send feedback in the addons issues section or here in the forum.
How do you use the layout field?
e. g. as single content field or nested in a set or in a repeater…
Which custom components do you use?
e. g. markdown, other code editors…
Do you miss an essential feature in the block editor?
Well… I don’t know, yet. That’s, why I’m asking
