Create Todo and Checklists in the WordPress Editor With New Plugin – WP Tavern

Later during the presentation he said he hopes that WordPress will “have 300 or ideally 3,000 of these block themes” before entering the Collaboration phase of the Gutenberg project.

Choose the best Docker image for the job at hand

Docker images revolutionized the computing world, but not all images are created equal. Let’s look at how to choose the best Docker image for the job at hand. Because while there are many suitable images your organization could choose, the best option depends on its context. The difference in requirements between production-use and quick-and-dirty Docker images is vast. For personal use, a quick, disposable image works.
