NC State’s “Shortcake”-Powered Design Strategy

Shortcake is a “feature plugin” (under consideration for inclusion in WordPress core) that helps developers create a simple user interface for inserting shortcodes, and renders previews of those shortcodes inside the Visual Editor. At NC State, Shortcake offers solutions to some of the biggest challenges of running WordPress at a big, decentralized institution.

This presentation will discuss how to build Shortcake-powered shortcodes, how the way we think about themes has changed, and the future of the WordPress editing experience.
