Support » Plugin: Gutenberg Blocks - ACF Blocks Suite » What’s with all the extra code?

  • Reviewing the codebase it doesn’t seem healthy to use this in my opinion.. including all this code in the ‘Freemius’ folder is really necessary?

    The blocks themselves seem good, but the plugin is super heavy overall and it feels to me like theres too many extra code not related to the actual functionality of the plugin itself.

    Hi @shinobicato

    Thank you for your feedback. That Freemius in the plugin is being used on purpose to enable our users to easily upgrade to pro and to handle payments and licensing.

    Only a tiny chunk of that code base is actually executed. The fact that there’s a lot of code/files in that library, doesn’t directly correlated with the resource consumption. Also, 1/2 of the size of the Freemius SDK (Folder) is the translations. That has no impact at all on the performance of your website.

    I hope that clarifies your concerns, let me know if you have any questions.

    Rest assures, I am working hard on the plugin and I hope it would be useful to you if you create websites using ACF + Gutenberg.


    This is NOT worth a 1 star review in my opinion – the bulk of the size is from translations. And file size has nothing to do with functionality. The plugin does exactly what it says, and is fast and performant. The author is also extremely helpful, and they are adding new, free features all the time.
