Add a custom sidebar panel to Gutenberg

WordPress 5.0 will ship with a brand new content editor dubbed Gutenberg. It’s one of – if not the – largest changes to WordPress in the last… ever (?). With change comes anxiety and because this is the Internet, this particular change comes with opinions. Lots and lots of opinions. This post is going to take a massive sidestep around those opinions, and instead focus on something that I haven’t seen published anywhere. I’m going to show you how to add a custom sidebar panel to Gutenberg that can apply to your own custom blocks or, importantly, to existing blocks (whether they be provided by WordPress core, or other plugins)
