Insert Block Pattern Block

Description

This Block inserts any Block Pattern at any insert point (+), also from inside a column block.

The block is replaced by the Block Pattern content. (The “Insert Block Pattern” Block is removed)

Theme Block Patterns are an excellent method for making well designed block content available to editors and authors.

This Block is a provisional solution. It will be maintained until the Block Pattern Library is extended.

Languages

  1. English
  2. Norwegian

Screenshots

  • Insert Block Pattern into page ( a paragraph )
  • Insert Block Pattern into a Columns Block

Installation

Manual Installation

  1. Unpack the insert-block-pattern-block.zip to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory

  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

NPM Installation

A minimal package.json, webpack.config.js is included.

Note: copy this into a .babelrc file at plugins/insert-block-pattern-block/.babelrc
{
  "presets": ["@babel/preset-env", "@babel/preset-react"],
  "plugins": [
    "@babel/plugin-syntax-dynamic-import",
    "@babel/plugin-proposal-class-properties"
  ]
}

To install and build:

plugins/insert-block-pattern-block/$ npm i
plugins/insert-block-pattern-block/$ npm run build

Creating language files

  1. Create .mo and .po files from the languages/ibpb.pot file for your language.

  2. Check that textdomain in front of mo and po. The files need to be of the form: ‘ibpb-<LOCALE>.mo’. eg. ibpb-nb_NO.mo, ibpb-nb_NO.po

  3. Use WP-Cli at plugins/ipbp/

    $ wp i18n make-json languages/ibpb-<LOCALE>.po –no-purge

This produces a 2 json file with a hash strings.

It does not currently work directly by adding these 2 files – they must be combined into a new json file:

Copy one of the 2 generated files to:

ibpb-<LOCALE\>-ibpb_blocks_registration.json

Combine the messages into one file

"locale_data": { "messages": { <MESSAGES HERE> }}

Rename the source line to:

"source": "ibpb_blocks_registration.js",

This should end up with a file something like this:

plugins/insert-block-pattern-block/languages/ibpb-<LOCALE\>-ibpb_blocks_registration.json

{
  "translation-revision-date": "2021-01-17 10:27+0100",
  "generator": "WP-CLI/2.2.0",
  "source": "ibpb_blocks_registration.js",
  "domain": "messages",
  "locale_data": {
    "messages": {
        "": {
            "domain": "messages",
            "lang": "nb_NO",
            "plural-forms": "nplurals=2; plural=(n != 1);"
          },
              "Block for inserting a Block Pattern": [
                    "Blokk for \u00e5 sette inn ett blokkm\u00f8nster"
         ],
          "Block Pattern": ["Blokkm\u00f8nster"],
              "Insert Block Pattern": ["Sett inn Blokkm\u00f8nster"],
              "Select a Block Pattern Category": ["Velg kategori"],
              "Uncategorized": ["Ukategorisert"],
              "Select a Block Pattern": ["Velg Blokk m\u00f8nster"]
        }
    }
}
