I have a custom plugin that will help me in building my layouts using bootstrap.

I'm reading about the blocks that are part of the new Gutenberg editor.

I want to understand if the shortcodes and the blocks can be work together, if it's not possible, do i need to rewrite the plugin? Would like to know the differences.


Gutenberg has a block for this. The Shortcode Block.

There are no settings for the shortcode block. You simply have one input box where you can insert a shortcode.

Shortcodes are most commonly used by plugins to add functionality to a WordPress site, without the need to write custom code. Essentially, it's a shortcut to adding more advanced pieces of content.

You should be perfectly fine to use your shortcode.
