Support » Plugin: Carbon Fields » Carbon Fields V 2.0

  • Resolved Bage



    I recently learned about Carbon Fields and really interested in using in my current project. Since the V 2.0 is already available in GitHub, when could we expect it here please?

    Thanking you,

    Hello @bagerathan

    At this point we’re not quite sure whether(and how) to distribute Carbon Fields v2 via the WordPress plugin repository.

    The best way to use Carbon Fields v2 is to install it via composer:
    composer require htmlburger/carbon-fields

    Carbon Fields is not really a plugin — it’s a library that could be used by plugin and theme authors. Carbon Fields, on itself doesn’t do anything – you need to write PHP code in order to utilize it. So the best way to update it is via composer update rather than from the WordPress admin.

    This post describes those issues pretty well:

    For time being we’re releasing bugfix releases in the WordPress plugin repo(on the 1.X branch). We try hard not to introduce breaking changes there.

    In future we’ll probably add a banner here in the WP repo that the latest version lives in github. Or we’ll just delete the plugin and maintain just the composer package.
