Sage ACF Gutenberg Blocks

Generate ACF Gutenberg blocks just by adding templates to your Sage theme. This package is based heavily on this article by nicoprat.


Run the following in your Sage 9-based theme directory:

composer require "mwdelaney/sage-acf-gutenberg-blocks"

Creating blocks

Add blade templates to views/blocks which get and use ACF data. Each template requires a comment block with some data in it:


Example block template

  Title: Testimonial
  Description: Customer testimonial
  Category: formatting
  Icon: admin-comments
  Keywords: testimonial quote

<blockquote data-{{ $block['id'] }} class="{{ $block['classes'] }}">
    <p>{{ get_field('testimonial') }}</p>
      <span>{{ get_field('author') }}</span>

<style type="text/css">
  [data-{{$block['id']}}] {
    background: {{ get_field('background_color') }};
    color: {{ get_field('text_color') }};

Creating ACF fields

Once a block is created you'll be able to assign ACF fields to it using the standard Custom Fields interface in WordPress. We recommend using sage-advanced-custom-fields to keep your ACF fields in version control with Sage.
