I'm amazed this only shows 500 installations so far. This is a MUST for any site. If this was a stock feature there would probably be a lot more people willing to adopt/accept the new editor. Thanks Kalimah Apps for the excellent plugin!

A plug-in that should not be missing from any WordPress installation. Without the helpful outlines, it is often difficult for the editor to find the block that needs to be edited. That's why this function should actually be added to the WordPress Core. The author of the plug-in offers great support and the users' wishes are actually implemented.`

I literally was planning to do the same with CSS - add dashed borders to the containers in gutenberg, this is so much more useful: opacity, colours, on-hover, permanent - I consider it essential! (And should definitely be core). Great work and thank you!
