Structured data made easier than unstructured ...a benefit not a chore

Find new blocks at the point of need

Discover and use new blocks when you actually need them, directly from within the WordPress editor, and avoid needing to install block plugins ever again. A one-time install of the Þ plugin provides instant access to new and updated blocks as soon as they’re published

More powerful blocks including OpenAI-powered blocks

Directly access powerful third-party tools such as those from Mapbox and OpenAI without needing to sign up for your own account with dozens of different services or install any additional WordPress plugins-the Þ abstracts away the need to interface with different providers
