Front-end assets management (Pro)

About the feature

Advanced layouts, such as sliders, masonry grids, or galleries, require the use of JavaScript libraries. The Pro version of the Advanced Views plugin offers simplified assets management for these scenarios.
Advanced Views Pro comes with a set of pre-loaded JS libraries. In addition to the libraries themselves, Advanced Views knows their markup requirements and the minimal configuration they need. This allows you to easily incorporate these libraries into your Views and Cards without any hassle.
All the selected JS libraries are well-known, written in pure JavaScript, and offer flexibility in their settings.
Let's consider a practical example.
Suppose you have an ACF gallery field and want to turn it into an inline gallery.
You select the LightGallery library in the Gallery option of the field settings. Advanced Views will automatically adjust the field's markup by adding the necessary classes and wrappers required by the LightGallery library. It will also include the minimal configuration settings for the instance in the JS code of the current View.
Now, if you need to, you can quickly customize this default gallery markup and the JS configuration of the inline gallery.
When the View or Card that uses a specific JS library is displayed on a page, Advanced Views will automatically load that library on the page. This means you still have full control over the markup and JS instance settings, but you don't need to worry about library loading, reading documentation about markup requirements, or configuring the instances from scratch.
You can find the full list of pre-loaded JS libraries on this page, along with information about which field types are supported by each library.
