Best Practices for bundling Required Plugin alongside WordPress Plugin

We’re currently developing a WordPress plugin. Our Plugin needs 2 Plugins (Redux Options Framework, Advanced Custom Fields Pro). We want to bundle these plugins within our package as they are required.

It seems that the best way to use Redux is to embed it within your plugin and we have done that, and it works fine.

I wanted to ask if it’s possible to embed ACF Pro within our plugin as-well. We plan to embed it in such a way that if a user installs the plugin manually, it will use the installed version instead of the embedded one.

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated!

Yes, you can bundle it and they have instructions how to do it properly - ACF | Including ACF within a plugin or theme
