Content Blocks Builder

Description

This is NOT another block library. This plugin help developers/users do three things:

  1. To create custom blocks from core blocks or third-party blocks. It supports repeater blocks like the ACF repeater field.
  2. To create custom block patterns.
  3. To create custom block variations.

There are no pre-defined layouts or styles for custom blocks, patterns, variations for the first version.
The upcoming versions will support common layouts such as grid, flex row, carousel, list, tab, accordion, modal, offcanvas… for custom blocks.

I've been searching years for something like this to come out and finally! A practical and functional plugin that enhances gutenburg usability. How can not one single plugin out of thousands allow us to create 1 custom block out of a group of blocks? And with one single click? The built in re-usable blocks to me are useless. Thank you to whoever created this! You are a true genius.
