Synchronized JSON

I’ve been using Admin Columns for only a week now, but I’m sure this plugin is going to be our new standard when creating WordPress sites for our customers.

Therefor it would be really nice to have a synchronised JSON system similar to Advanced Custom Fields ( I noticed you guys already import/export to/from JSON.

With ACF we noticed it was quite a hassle to synchronise our sites through our DTAP setup. Their approach fixed all of it. All our ACF data is now stored in git and with a simple press on the button we synchronise it on the live sites.

I think this feature would be a great addition to your product.

Hi Tjarco,

Thanks you very much for your feedback.
I know exactly what you mean and this is definitely something we want to develop for our product.
Unfortunately there are some other integrations and the major releas that have our main focus for now.
But this feature is on our roadmap.

For those looking for this:

We have implemented it, but we did not feel JSON was the best option for two reasons:

  1. JSON is readable for the public and shows you the info you might not want to share, like labels or how your meta fields are named
  2. A PHP file can be more easily targeted for caching

But other than that, this will allow you to add your settings to Git or send them over SFTP or however you like to deal with your code: it’s no longer in the database ;)
