How do I add icons to the editor?

SVG Icons can be created by inserting an Image block anywhere in the block editor and then selecting the “SVG Icon” block style from the right sidebar settings.

Custom icon sets can be added by passing the path to the icons to the Blockify config. Please see the default Blockify theme for an example.

PHP 7.4 or higher is required. Lower versions are no longer supported.

How do I add code snippets for filter and action hooks?

Parent themes, child themes and plugins can all be used to modify the default behaviour of Blockify. Every function is either added with a filter or an action which provides developers more control.
