Using Blocks

Block Protocol (Þ) blocks can be used in a variety of different environments.


Now available


HASH is a block-based knowledge management, business intelligence and tool-building application.


The Block Protocol for Wordpress plugin adds support for Þ blocks within the existing WordPress Gutenberg editor. It can be downloaded directly from the WordPress plugin directory, or by any WordPress admin via the 'Plugins' screen in their wp-admin, by searching for the "Block Protocol".

Planned environments

GitHub Blocks

We aim to ensure that blocks developed in accordance with the Block Protocol spec can be used within GitHub markdown READMEs interactively, and elsewhere on Currently blocks are currently only available for use within GitHub as part of the GitHub Next early release program. We are in the early stages of determining what possible support might look like.


We are planning support for Block Protocol blocks in both Figma and Figjam. Development has not yet begun. If you are interested in getting involved, please let us know on our Discord.

Other environments

Information regarding additional planned embedding environments will be posted here as it becomes available.

Make a suggestion

If there's an application you'd like to see us exploring, please reach out to us.

Your own application

Alternatively, if you're an application developer interested in implementing the Block Protocol within your own app, allowing your users to insert blocks and use services from the Þ Hub, please reach out to us and we'll be in touch. While the protocol remains under heavy active development, we haven't yet released public documentation covering this process, but doing so is on our roadmap.

You can also register for updates to get notified when we release new docs and tools for embedders.
