How to Add CSS to Block Editor Based on Post Type

I have multiple post types on my website, for example you’re reading a normal post, but there are also support articles like this one. The posts are almost similar except one thing – the heading font size.

It is quite easy to change the title font size depending on a post type on a website, you just have to make sure that your theme is using body_class() function and then you can use a CSS selector like .single-{post type} h1, but this way will never work in Gutenberg! So please don’t try to add classes via admin_body_class or anything like this.

Let’s assume that we have style-editor.css file which contains the block editor styles for all post types and we have style-editor-custom-h1.css which contains you know what.

And here is the code:

add_action( 'after_setup_theme', function() {
	add_theme_support( 'editor-styles' );
	add_editor_style( 'style-editor.css' );
		false !== stristr( $_SERVER[ 'REQUEST_URI' ], 'post-new.php' ) && isset( $_GET[ 'post_type' ] ) && 'support' === $_GET[ 'post_type' ]
		|| false !== stristr( $_SERVER[ 'REQUEST_URI' ], 'post.php' ) && 'support' === get_post_type( $_GET[ 'post' ] )
	) {
		add_editor_style( 'style-editor-custom-h1.css' );
} );

Now let me explain how it works.
