I’ve been using ACF for a while now and although it is awesome, it cannot cover all user cases.
In project I’m developing I need custom SVG map that can be edited and it’s state saved on the server. I know I can use vanilla WP API or create ACF plugin with jQuery, but I don’t think it’s the optimal solution. ACF smooths out a lot of WP quirks for us, developers and I prefer to use it’s simple API for this kind of job.
What would be ideal in my case ( and to other developers, too )
Create custom WP page, there load our single page apps ( ex my SVG map ) and do CRUD operations with simple ACF API:
const mapState = acf.getStore(‘svg-map’, ‘option’);
// Load as JSON, display the map
// User makes changes, clicks save
