Support » Plugin: Carbon Fields » The Answer to ACF Pro vs. Free Plugins

  • I’m a huge fan of and have a developer license for ACF Pro.

    That said, I needed a solution that I could include with free plugins that offered some of the cool features of Pro like repeating fields (aka Complex fields) and easy options pages.

    There are a lot of frameworks out there, but I chose this one because it is one of the few that supports repeater/complex field groups well and is easily extensible. Good stuff!

    FYI, if you want to pull it into the vendor folder via Composer, this worked for me:

    "require": {
      "mnsami/composer-custom-directory-installer": "*",
      "htmlburger/carbon-fields": "*",
    },
    "extra":{
      "installer-paths":{
        "./vendor/{$name}": ["htmlburger/carbon-fields"]
      }
    }
