This is exactly what I needed. I can make my own Gutenberg blocks with JS, PHP, and HTML without having to learn Node.js, React, and Redux (really Wordpress?). I plan on learning these, but need a solution right away. The only thing I wish is you could add your own icons for blocks.
I have to dock 1 star because of the pricing of the paid subscription. $360 USD/ year for Genesis Pro? That's insane guys. I want to support you, but that's insane. I pay much less than that for leading media production software. I pay 1/3 that for a complete page builder that does so much more than Genesis Pro plus includes a clipart sub also. Your competitors are also about 1/3 the price.
I'd be willing to pay $360 for a lifetime sub, not yearly. For Genesis Custom Blocks specifically I'd pay $49 - $99 / year if it was being actively developed.
Thanks for the great plugin!
Couple of questions...I see there is a way to include a .css file along with the .php file in the blocks folder inside the theme. However, is there also a way to enqueue a .js file with the block as well?
Also, is there a quick way inside of php to determine if the user is access the block from the preview or from the front end? I know that there is the ability to create a separate preview php file, but the reason I ask is because there may be some cases where I literally only have a slight difference between the preview and live block and it would be nice to be able to write a conditional into the block php rather than copying all of the code and maintaining two separate files.
Great tool for creating custom blocks. Interface is well designed and intuitive. I'm sure the author is aware that there's another competing custom block plugin that offers features not available in the Genesis Custom Blocks free version. While I don't mind paying for a commercial version to get the full feature set, having to pay for the pro plugin as part of a Genesis package that includes other things I don't need which costs a whopping $360 a year is a major turn off. I'd suggest selling the pro plugin as a separate product for a reasonable fee.
