Create native blocks
with ease.

Blockstudio extends the block.json to allow you to define fields for your block. They are automatically added to the editor and saved to the block as attributes. Gutenberg components are used to display the controls for those fields, assuring a coherent editing experience.


                        {
      "name": "marketing/cta",
      "title": "CTA",
      "description": "Custom Call to Action block.",
      "blockstudio": {
        "attributes": [
          {

Albums Scoped styles

Style encapsulation made easy.

Never worry about overlapping styles or class names ever again. With scoped styles you can keep your CSS structure simple, move quicker and iterate faster.


                                
        <?php /* index.php */ ?>
        <div class="<?php echo bs_get_scoped_class( $b["name"] ) ?>">
            <h1>Scope me!</h1>
        </div>

                                
        /* style-scoped.css */
        h1 {
            color: red;
        }

          
          
        

Result:


                                                  <style>
                .bs-62df71e6cc9a h1 {

The world of blocks at your fingertips.

The Blockstudio editor is the next evolution in WordPress block development. It further reduces the barrier of editing blocks and brings a loved and well known code interface (Visual Code Studio via Monaco) to the WordPress admin area.

What others are saying:

Finding the balance between using native Gutenberg blocks and still achieving high level, advanced and complex layouts which clients can edit can be a challenge. Blockstudio lowers the barrier to entry for creating Gutenberg blocks by making use of ACF and Metabox functions in an easy to use system. It's as simple as creating a folder, adding a PHP file and defining your block. The possibilities are limitless.

Taylor Drayson

I've been using Blockstudio to build custom Gutenberg blocks for a few months, on both my personal site alongside several client projects. It makes creating blocks incredibly easy and really cuts out on dev time. I love that it works alongside ACF and Metabox as we use both, depending on project requirements. As Gutenberg grows, we're pivoting more towards blocks and away from custom themes and builders - Blockstudio is the enabler for that transition.
