I put together a plugin that auto registers ACF field groups as Gutenberg blocks. This allows new editor blocks to be inserted without extra boilerplate code in theme files. Simply activate the ‘Auto Block’ setting on a field group, configure the options and presto – the block will be available in the Gutenberg editor.
I also make heavy use of flexible layouts to create ‘page builders’ in templates, and included a new action that will convert existing layouts into stand-alone block-ready field groups. This has been very helpful in upgrading older projects.
What an amazing year! 🎉 ACF grew by leaps and bounds in 2018 and won't be slowing down for 2019. We have lots of new features planned, but now it is time to rest, recover, and spend valuable time with friends and family. 👨👩👧👦🎄🎁
