So, files were written, a name is set, some database stuff was build etc. etc. At the end, you can see it says “Please edit…”. Now open up this file (config.php). This is the main config file of your Block Type. You can see a name, description and one field (“title”). Your contents should look like this:

<?php

return [
	// Block
	"block"  => [
		"name"        => t("Hello Block Developer"),
		"description" => t("Created with Block Developer"),
	],

	// Fields
	"fields" => [
		"title" => [
			"type"        => "Text",
			"label"       => t("A Text Input Field"),
			"description" => t("This is the description of the field"),
			"required"    => true,
			"searchable"  => true,
		],
	],
];

Now we can add fields, like a “Content” field and an “Image”. This is done in the “fields” section of this config file. In the default config file, there is a “title” field which has the “Text” (field) type. The label of this field is t("A Text Input Field") and also has a description. You can see it being a required field (because of the “true” value) and it is a searchable field – so it turns up in your search results if you use that on your site. You can set a “true” value to “false” too if you’d like of course, to achieve the opposite. The "title" part, right before “type”, is the variable as used in your view/template file(s). So make sure these are always unique. In case you have duplicates, the last one will always be overridden. How would the file look with the 2 extra fields then? Like this:

<?php

return [
	// Block
	"block"  => [
		"name"        => t("Hello Block Developer"),
		"description" => t("Created with Block Developer"),
	],

	// Fields
	"fields" => [
		"title" => [
			"type"        => "Text",
			"label"       => t("A Text Input Field"),
			"description" => t("This is the description of the field"),
			"required"    => true,
			"searchable"  => true,
		],
		"content" => [
			"type"        => "Wysiwyg",
			"label"       => t("Some content"),
			"required"    => true,
			"searchable"  => true,
		],
		"awesomeImage" => [
			"type"        => "Image",
			"label"       => t("An awesome image"),
			"required"    => true,
			"searchable"  => true,
		],
	],
];

Now run the same command as you did before:

concrete/bin/concrete5 c5:block-developer -b hello_block_developer
