Lead dev of Redux here. I totally appreciate your opinion. I simply want to clarify for other developers, and maybe for you too.
Color picker is free… Why wouldn’t it be? Color SCHEMES is an extension on of our core devs made that let’s you set arrays of color pickers and save them as schemes is an extension. Quite a different thing.
Customizer is free, and includes WP 4.0 panels for all fields that WordPress natively supports. In the future (shortly) there will be an extension to bring all the Redux fields into the customizer.
Metaboxes does cost yearly, but you can cancel at any time and keep the version you have. We in NO WAY expect you to pay when you’re not making money off of it.
So the choice is yours, I truly wish you the best. Redux just tries to unite it all into one format. ACF would work great for metaboxes if you want to use it.
Best of luck!
Woah, I was totally unaware that color picker is free, and you only pay for color schemes creation! That’s great ‘news’, I thought that you have to pay for commercial licence, sorry it was probably just me not paying attention at class
This changes things a lot, I already use ACF for metaboxes and I’m happy with that, so since I can use color-picker with Redux for free, I’m just maybe going to have to buy one Redux addon, and see how things go in the first year. So, I’m going with Redux.
Glad you’re here to make some clarifications when we don’t know what we’re talking about. Again, thanks for all your work, and sorry if this sounded like I’m trying to put Redux down, it really wasn’t like that. I really think that Redux is #1 in the field, and I was just trying to put my expenses down since it went crazy a little You’re doing some great work, and giving it almost all for free is a big deal!
I’ll be using Redux for my project, case closed Thanks everyone!
