    Great approach to metaboxes. I hope to see more usage of this to prevent metabox madness and further declutter the post edit screen.

    Awesome, I’ll have to check this out. I’ve used WP-Alchemy for years, but it’s kinda long in the tooth.

    Wow ! The next level of WordPress Meta box. Just like woo-commerce and it will be great achievement for developers making themes with lots of meta box.

    Using CMB2 since long but this seems very handy in a tiny size.

    Great improvement for postmeta in the backend! Looking forward to seeing more documentation in github on this.

    Thanks for covering this, Sarah.

    I would’ve released sooner, but I put the project on the backburner for most of the 3 months of beta testing to work work on my most recent theme release. It’s actually one of the methods I use to allow my brain to recharge and come back to a project with a fresh perspective. Get 90% or so done. Work on something else for a while. Then, come back and finish.

    There are public JavaScript functions for interacting with ButterBean. This is the part built on top of Backbone.js. This is also a huge milestone for me in development. I’ve never built something in JavaScript meant to be extended. It’s also really nice because with 50 lines or so of code, I can do something like a media modal without having to use jQuery to manipulate the DOM.

    Anyway, I hope folks like it. I’m working on getting started tutorial right now and will get it published shortly.

      This looks very cool. Good work. I can see this being highly useful to many of us.

      PS. On the homepage, “This often a better option than many meta boxes.” I think you left out “is”.

      This looks really promising, Justin. The only problem I see with it is that if it gets popular, we’ll get a lot of clashes between plugins, especially once you iterate through a couple more versions of it. Plugin A would have version 1.0.0, plugin B would have version 1.2.15 etc. Do you have any advice (or a plan) how to deal with that?

    Thanks for sharing this.

    Pretty much everything that Justin makes is of amazing quality. He has mad skillz with producing top quality WordPress plugins IMHO. I have no doubt that this will be an extremely useful addition to the WordPress community.

    I have integrated ButterBean into my latest project. Awesome! Very similar to the customizer api, and easy to use. Thanks J!
