  • I was looking for it as well;

    ACF is great, but it really meshes up your database.

    It even creates empty records (two for every entry) of empty values and it’s revisions… when you save an empty value and do some revisions on the same page, your database will explode with useless entries.

    The project started as a stand-alone script (outside the WP environment), than I decided to run it by cronjobs, after that I realized it was more easy to wrap it into a plug-in.

    So that’s why the code is a mix of plain-vanilla PHP and some WP-API’s 🙂

    The only restriction is that your field-ID’s are prefixed with “ACF__” or “acf__” because I use this as an identifier for the queries.

    Feel free to port; it’s completely open source.
