    This is a risky move for WordPress. Not entirely because this plugin is imperfect nor because it’s different. Instead this major move is both imperfect and probably too different.

    The user experience WordPress offered already was mostly effective. Using dynamic JS could improve the process however this plugin abandons the UX workflow it has established and aims to replace it all for no particularly good reason. Additionally, the hyper minimalism (mostly white and soft gray lines) makes the experience more vague and unintuitive. I assumed I would be able to use this plugin immediately and easily. I can not. I found myself clicking on the incorrect buttons producing the incorrect results.

    I’m sorry but you need to go back to the drawing board. Some meaningful changes need to be made. This isn’t really it.

    Hi! Thank you for your review. Indeed the Gutenberg project is, like most WordPress, still a work in progress.

    The classic experience WordPress offered was most effective for seasoned users, while new users went through normal learning hurdles using the classic experience as well.

    However, it is true that building the best solution requires a lot of iteration. Your participation, by contributing on the Gutenberg project would be most valued (for example raising an issue there about how “the hyper minimalism (mostly white and soft gray lines) makes the experience more vague and unintuitive.”.
