WP Engine has announced Genesis Pro, a product that provides professional-quality blocks and page layout tools for Gutenberg. It has been released first as an add-on for WP Engine customers but is coming to all StudioPress customers later this year.
According to David Vogelpohl on the StudioPress blog, this release “doesn’t affect existing Genesis customers and does not require that your site be hosted on WP Engine … to use” it. 🛠️
Genesis Pro is an impressive new offering for WordPress, but there has been some talk in Post Status‘ #club Slack channel about the potential impact on independent developers who are trying to build and release blocks of their own.
