Gutenberg, REST API, and you…

Daniel Bachhuber, a core contributor for a number of years, has just this Call to Action on the WordPress Core blog:

Frontenberg is a way to play around with the new WordPress ‘Gutenberg‘ editor which is coming in WordPress 5.0 without the need to mess around installing WordPress or adding the Gutenberg Plugin.

It was released in December 2017 by Tom J Nowell who works as a VIP Wrangler at WordPress.com VIP for Automattic.
