Wrap WordPress shortcodes in custom blocks

A quick tutorial on how any shortcode can be turned into an editable custom block. Shortcode options are mapped to block attributes. The process is done with minimal coding using Pinegrow Web Editor and exported as a standalone WordPress plugin.

In this tutorial we will take the Pie Calendar’s shortcode and turn it into a custom WordPress block with editable attributes that control how the calendar is displayed.

The same approach can be used with any shortcode.
