The developers of Astra theme have just announced a major update for their WordPress block editor integration. They’ve redesigned it from the ground up, taking advantage of theme.json.
The theme.json introduced in WordPress 5.8 provides a new way for themes to set the styling for the WordPress editor and the front end of the website, including colour, paddings, margins, typography, and border settings for example. This way, themes can now easily offer customization options for individual Gutenberg blocks.
After updating to the latest version, you can now fully customize the new WordPress core blocks in terms of colours and typography. This includes the new “latest posts”, “login/logout”, and “site title” blocks.
Lastly, they have improved Astra’s page settings, making them more visual, categorized, and streamlined. They also significantly improved performance by more than 33% compared to the previous version.
