A lot of us are probably creating some sort of page builders with ACF and ACF Pro. When your page builder get more advanced and the length of the pages grow the time it takes to fully render an admin edit page can grow quite long.
We’ve been testing different setups and combinations of flexible content fields, repeaters etc. for our “page builder” and have found a quite good setup. The late initialization allowed by the wysiwyg field these days shortened the rendering times quite a bit as it saves a lot of scripting from the browser on the initial load.
Though initializing a wysiwyg field is quite heavy so is initializing color picker and select2 fields too. I propose that ACF would add an option that allows late initialization also for the color picker field. It can be represented quite nicely without the interactive part until it’s clicked.
If this is something that can be achieved easily by creating a custom ACF plugin or by using a few hooks could someone point me to the right direction?
