    Can’t claim to be very familiar with Drupal’s new layout builder, but have to say it looks fairly powerful (although somewhat ugly IMO). I feel like Apostrophe CMS deserves some credit as a pioneer among in-context-editing CMS’s however – they’ve been doing it for years already and ship a mature open source system today. See https://apostrophecms.org/

      “Can’t claim to be very familiar with Drupal’s new layout builder, but have to say it looks fairly powerful (although somewhat ugly IMO).”

      You just basically summed up all of Drupal. Aesthetically pleasing UI is not high on the priority list, but boy is it powerful if you learn how to use it.

    How will this compare to https://drupalgutenberg.org/ in terms of power and ease-of-use to the site builder?

    As a Drupal developer, I’ll just mention one of the benefits of layout builder is you can toggle it on or off for each content type (as well as selectively override layouts for individual content items).

    If it’s turned off, content is displayed using the old system (Drupal content types consist of fields, and you get a ‘Display’ admin page with a table where you can manage the order of the field and how it’s labelled/formatted, and drag them around).

    It’s usable at the moment but naturally still has bugs.
