@nobbyget_fields returns fields with values only. get_field_objects() – “Returns the settings of all fields saved on a specific post.”.
For your purposes I suggest to use the definition in acf-json.
The only issue is that there is no API, meaning that if the structure changes,
your solution need to adapt to it.
