The Future of Gutenberg and Genesis

Just in case anyone was wondering whether the Genesis theme framework was going to be compatible with Gutenberg, here's a definitive answer from StudioPress & WP Engine

The Future of Gutenberg and Genesis

Community | studiopress.blog | Sep. 18, 2018

Gutenberg is the future of WordPress. It brings the promise of new functionality, enabling developers and designers to create reusable modules (“blocks”) for design and content, while empowering end-users to combine and customize those modules to do everything from launching twenty simple landing pages in an hour to building a complex new digital experience. There are also valid concerns with the project, on subjects such as launch timeline and backwards-compatibility. A healthy path forward means addressing concerns while embracing the new benefits.
There are some key questions we want to help you answer such as…
How will Genesis support the transition to Gutenberg?
How will this result in new, wonderful features for the designers, developers, and end users of Gutenberg-enabled WordPress sites?
How will Genesis make it easier and more efficient to create new Gutenberg-powered themes?
How will Genesis help you lead with Gutenberg?
We’re going to be posting heavily in the coming months on studiopress.blog to help address these questions and to share the work the newly expanded Genesis engineering team is doing to help you lead with Gutenberg.

Ready to try Genesis 3.0.0 Beta?

The proposed changes are already stirring up considerable discussion in the Genesis Slack group, but I do think the resulting leaner, meaner Genesis is a good thing. And why do we have a Plugins category but not a Themes category?

Genesis 2.5 Now Available

Community | studiopress.blog | Apr. 26, 2017

We are happy to announce that, after several months of work, Genesis 2.5 is available and ready for you to download. In Genesis 2.4, we began the process of expanding our Markup API to allow for nearly universal markup control. Through filters, you can modify the HTML element, modify the attributes, add additional microdata, or disable the output completely.
We also began removing the legacy XHTML from the main output functions: The output logic is now its own file, which doesn’t load unless you’re running an older theme that doesn’t support HTML5.
Genesis 2.5 will continue to add new elements to the list of those that have been passed through the Markup API. It will extract more and more of those last bits of XHTML logic, as well.
We made significant progress, both in conversation and code, in starting to move Genesis into a better-organized, more object-oriented direction. This work will continue into 2.6, but the steps taken so far are as much examples for future development as they are code improvements.
In addition, we’ve tried to extract large blocks of HTML that were previously mixed in with large blocks of PHP in order to move them into their own files.

An Important Announcement About the Future of StudioPress

Wooo, congrats everyone involved — looks like WPEngine has acquired StudioPress.

An Important Announcement About the Future of StudioPress

Community | studiopress.blog | Jun. 27, 2018

Eleven years ago, I left my job as a project manager at an architectural firm to pursue a career in freelance web design and internet shenanigans. I call it that, because truth be told, I really had no idea what I was getting into. All I know was that at the time, my theme business was doing six figures a month in sales, and—as I told my wife—it was financially irresponsible for me to stay “working for the man.”
I wanted to be “the man” and knew there was no better time to take the leap of faith.
Fast forward a few years, and I made another pivotal move which resulted in the formation of Copyblogger Media. As part of that decision, StudioPress was merged into our new company, and along with that came a partner circle of five.
This September we will celebrate eight years together, and they have been the most formative in my entrepreneurial journey. I have learned so much from those who I work alongside, and the business knowledge I have gained over the years has been incredible.
Not a day goes by that I regret any of these decisions. I continue to wake up each morning with a joy for what I do, and more importantly, who I do it for.
Which brings me
