So I am using nested blocks in Wordpress Gutenberg. I am applying a wrapper on my elements that apply a bootstrap container class. Obviously I'd only want that on the outermost blocks, not on the ones inside a nested block.

Is there a way to know if the current block is inside a InnerBlocks Definiton of a parent block? I am currently applying the wrapper inside the blocks.getSaveElement Filter.

Is there a better way to do this?

For context: In previous gutenberg versions there used to be the layout attribute to achieve that, but it has since been removed. I am using Version 3.9.0.

This is a shortened version of my wrapper function:

    namespace.saveElement = ( element, blockType, attributes ) => {
        const hasBootstrapWrapper = hasBlockSupport( blockType.name, 'bootstrapWrapper' );

        if (hasBlockSupport( blockType.name, 'anchor' )) {
            element.props.id = attributes.anchor;
        }
        if (hasBootstrapWrapper) {

            // HERE I NEED TO CHECK IF THE CURRENT ELEMENT IS INSIDE A INNERBLOCKS ELEMENT AND THEN APPLY DIFFERENT WRAPPER

            var setWrapperInnerClass = wrapperInnerClass;
            var setWrapperClass = wrapperClass;
            if (attributes.containerSize) {
                setWrapperInnerClass = wrapperInnerClass + ' ' + attributes.containerSize;
            }
            if (attributes.wrapperType) {
                setWrapperClass = wrapperClass + ' ' + attributes.wrapperType;
            }

            const setWrapperAnchor = (attributes.wrapperAnchor) ? attributes.wrapperAnchor : false;

            return (
                newEl('div', { key: wrapperClass, className: setWrapperClass, id: setWrapperAnchor},
                    newEl('div', { key: wrapperInnerClass, className: setWrapperInnerClass},
                        element
                    )
                )
            );
        } else {
            return element;
        }
    };

wp.hooks.addFilter('blocks.getSaveElement', 'namespace/gutenberg', namespace.saveElement);
