    I have needed this so much glad someone is working on it!

      Me too. It would be great if this was built into Gutenberg. I have added styling on my own to border blocks as outlines make it so much easier to identify where everything is when working on a complex layout.

    Thanks for the heads up! Moving over from several other page builders to the native WP Gutenberg, this is exactly what I’ve been missing.

    I think this plugin is a great move in the right direction! It’s like when you need to let the mechanic take a look under the hood of your car, but as an end-user, you don’t always want to see the engine to enjoy the ride.

    It makes great sense to start providing a debugging library layer for the Gutenberg project and support developers with different access levels.

    I doubt it will be of much help for the end-user to manage complex layouts. Complexity is not reduced through more complexity, and this experience should be embedded in the core of the layout system (blocks), not as an afterthought.

    I hope that more people will notice and appreciate this plugin’s goal and limit its purpose before going overboard with new fancy features.

    Perfect timing – I just created a comment block (only shows in Dashboard) and I wanted a way to clearly show that it was a comment block (apart from the colouring). I copied some CSS from this plugin to add ‘comment’ in the top right of the block.

    I do see a brilliant use case – distinguishing which column block is in use when you have plugins that provide additional column blocks. It’s often hard to know whether you are using a core block or an identically named one from a plugin.

    Agree completely, this is much clearer then the current edit/select toggle in the top bar.
    Simultaneous outlines for all the blocks on a page should definitely be part of core.

    This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks, dev.

    When I discovered the plugin I thought : ”If I use Gutenberg one day, I must install this”. So convenient.

    I usually add borders in block editor using CSS, this plugin will help us a lot. Thanks for sharing.
