One of the problems that the block editor was trying to solve was the way that shortcodes are handled in the editor.
There is an old beta plugin Shortcake that was a start at fixing this, but it didn’t help the user with existing shortcodes.
I was thinking of writing the missing piece for that, which would show which shortcodes are registered, but then found that one of my favorite plugin authors had just written
So, lately I was thinking that a fork and merge of these two with a little more focus on backward compatibility would help this community.
Goals would be:
- make it easier to use shortcodes
- provide a way to visualize the shortcode while editing
What are your thoughts on this?
