A interesting look at how improving micro-interactions in Gutenberg could improve its use and acceptance.

Excellent. We need more of this.

Fantastic. Love the UX brutalism.

On an other note, seems like Gutenberg is trying to use Medium paradigm to solve for Squarespace/Wix. That approach feels wrong.

I disagree. Gutenberg is far bolder of a move than anything Medium has to offer. Download it and play with it a bit. It's definitely a full-featured content editor for the web -- NOT a Word Processing experience ported to the web like simple TinyMCE is.

I was hinting at striking similarity between Gutenberg and Medium editor, so it clearly was a role model. And I agree that it is a bolder move, but raised an issue can you do a bolder move with something modeled after something not meant to do it. If that makes sense.

Great write-up, and I like that all of these things are achievable. Attention to detail really makes the user experience markedly improved.
