👀📎 It looks like you're preparing to MC a conference...

🚨 GIANT DISCLAIMER: This stuff is far from authoritative. But it's what I think works for me, and what I enjoy in an MC when I'm attending a conference.

Biggest tip - enjoy yourself.

/* matching a specific string */
regex = /hello/; // looks for the string between the forward slashes (case-sensitive)... matches "hello", "hello123", "123hello123", "123hello"; doesn't match for "hell0", "Hello"

regex = /h.*llo/; // the "*" matches any character(s) zero or more times... matches "hello", "heeeeeello", "hllo", "hwarwareallo"

‪“‬In what way is JS any more maintainable than CSS? How does writing CSS in JS make it any more maintainable?”

‪Happy to chat about this. There’s an obvious disclaimer that there’s a cost to css-in-js solutions, but that cost is paid specifically for the benefits it brings; as such it’s useful for some usecases, and not meant as a replacement for all workflows. ‬

‪(These conversations always get heated on twitter, so please believe that I’m here to converse, not to convince. In return, I promise to listen to you too and change my opinions; I’ve had mad respect for you for years and would consider your feedback a gift. Also, some of the stuff I’m writing might seem obvious to you; I’m not trying to tell you if all people of some of the details, but it might be useful to someone else who bumps into this who doesn’t have context)‬

So the big deal about css-in-js (cij) is selectors.

Converting a shortcode to a block: this method is fast to do, but a mediocre UX. You should only use this as a stopgap until you can implement a full block UI.
View php-block.js
// License: GPLv2+
var el = wp.element.createElement,
registerBlockType = wp.blocks.registerBlockType,
ServerSideRender = wp.components.ServerSideRender,
TextControl = wp.components.TextControl,
InspectorControls = wp.editor.InspectorControls;
* Here's where we register the block in JavaScript.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
