Installed and tested works like a charm. This is exactly what I've been looking for, I'm constantly losing track of what block is what, having a way to highlight blocks is a game changer. Honestly this needs to be part of the core for Block Editor, if you're into Gutenberg, and build sites with it, this is a must. Trust me when I say, this will save you so much time!!!

The title which of course is a (sort of accurate) quote from the Godfather III movie fits perfectly in this case. I was relying on the "EditorsKit" plugin to display the borders, then I found the "Editor Blocks Border" plugin which was better, and I thought I don't have to worry about that issue anymore, only to find this plugin which is the best one of it's kind so far. It does one thing, and it does it better than anything ! Nicely done, and the most amazing thing is that the zip file is only 3.31kb - (not a typo) !!! I'm out again...
This plugin solves a common pain point of the Block Editor - selecting the right block. It does it in a clean way, with a few settings for those who want to customize the look. This plugin is gonna become an instant classic.
