Before 1.0.0

Review posted by concrete5cojp on at

This package will give you great flexibility to create and maintain custom block types

Write config file as PHP array, then build a custom block type.
It's a simple idea, but this is what I wanted in years.
The greatest part is that the config file is a PHP file.
You can get any objects like pages, files, folders through concrete5 API, then you can pass it as option value. It's really flexible. I love it.
You'll become to love this package if you already use Block Designer.

Thanks HIssy for the kind words! Glad you like it, after being a fan of Block Designer for a while. The configuration with PHP should indeed give more freedom and flexibility, though maybe somewhat uncomfortable for non-developers. So Block Developer is a bit more developer oriented, but should be the successor of Block Designer for most anyways (due to its extras and flexibility).

We love this plugin

We have been using this plugin recently and it has already greatly accelerated our development process.

Great that in a short period of time you already feel the difference, that's how it should be! Would be fun to know also at a later point, if you're getting quicker and handy-er making Blocks :)

This is a must have addon for any serious project

This is the addon I will buy for almost every project, since it usually saves days of works and the associated bugs. Before this I used Block Designer from the same author, but this one is better if you code - it's faster and since it's all text based, your block definition are under version control and part of your packages, you can easily copy/paste or better build functions to build block definition or factor the repetitive parts. It costs less than a hundred euros and it saves hours or even days of headaches and repetitive and boring coding.
I only have two negatives with the addon : it should be part of the core of Concrete5 and it would be nice to have a few more built-in types.
