What i was looking for. Simple yet flexible. I can add any type of block in the slides.

This slider gave me what I wanted from a carousel slider block plugin, but the blocks were not well formatted out-of-the-box. In other words, in order for the page to be production ready, I'd have to do a lot more CSS work to get them to look nice on my site. That was disappointing. Also the design of the plugin was awkward to use. It didn't use standard conventions of Gutenberg so it was hard to add new blocks and I couldn't move or copy the blocks I had. I hope a new version will come out that aligns more with the way Gutenberg works.

I needed a way to add a testimonial slide in Gutenberg and this plugin was very easy to use. It works well with all the default blocks and third party ones.
