Ditching Custom Post Types UI Plugin and just using ACF?

After a long break, I started building WordPress sites again.

My workflow is basically setting up PHP like a templating language with partials and using the Custom Post Type UI and Advanced Custom Fields plugins to set the variables in WordPress.

I just noticed that Advanced Custom Fields lets you create your own custom post types. My impression is that this makes Custom Post Type UI not necessary anymore. Before I go all in on abandoning Custom Post Types UI, is there anything I should be cautious of? Anyone run into any issues by just using ACF to make custom post types?

  1. Being able to add CPTs in ACF means you don’t need the CPT-UI plugin any more. Simple as that.
