Blocks are great for customer facing products, when you want exactly what the block is done for.


  • As always when you use pre-built components, it’s more difficult to customize them later. So if you want flexibility, better create them yourself, or use very simple UI elements.
  • Using blocks means that you are dependent on a third-party resources. Use them to imitate them and recreate your own, but don’t copy them
