Pretty excited about the RSS block in Gutenberg 5.0

I noticed that Gutenberg 5.0 has added a RSS block to the editor. This is probably a bit nerdy, but I was pretty excited to see this addition to the block editor.

My “Interesting stuff” page is an experiment in sharing things I find, well, interesting online. I had to install a separate plugin to add a RSS feed that I created, initially. The new RSS block makes it as easy as it should be to just add a RSS feed to a post or a page.

I like it!

This wasn’t the only addition through Gutenberg 5.0. Here’s the announcement post with details of the new Kindle block, and a great tweak to the Cover block:

    Yes, I like these little things about Gutenberg. I recently changed my homepage from being a blog archive to a static page with “Recent posts” block and I like how it looks!

    Curious, how did you create this branded shortlink?

    What kind of plugin did you use to create the RSS feed your block reads?

      I’m mostly just using feeds from sites that I want to subscribe to with the block.

What do you think?
