The wordPress standard Gutenberg Sidebar \”Dimensions\” panel, does not give good control over spacings, since it only allows us to set \’fixed\’ spacings (with units \”%\”,\”rem\”,\”vh\”,\”vw\”,\”px\”,\”em\”). Additionally I wanted to have options to change the spacings for different screen size and have negative values possible ( e.g. removing a block-gap (
--wp--style--block-gap) in certain scenarios).
Therefor I made this little plugin: I wanted to map the spacing set in editor to my CSS Custom Property (CSSCP) (
Hope this might be helpful for some others out there.
