From time to time, you may need to create a block or a more complex component that uses more than one instance of the same component. In this blog post, we'll explain how this works in a bit more detail.
In our previous post, we covered how to use Storybook and WP-CLI to add additional blocks to your project. This post will walk you through modifying an existing block step-by-step.
Although there are a few basic blocks available after creating a project, there are a lot more blocks available in the dev kit. However, you have to add them to your project using WP-CLI (the simplest method). To see the complete list of available components and blocks, visit our Storybook.
These can be used out-of-the-box, but also as a good starting point if you need similar blocks in your projects. It will also speed up your development time since you don't have to build everything from scratch.
In this blog post, we'll give you a practical explanation about the difference between components and blocks. For a truly in-depth explanation about components and blocks, you can refer to our documentation. A more specific explanation about using components in a block can be found in the Component in a Block section.
