ProBeaver Weekly 55 – Speed Up

Beaver Insta Load Feature, Gutenberg Beaver Integration, Beaver support in LifterLMS, Logo Image Schema in Beaver Themer Header, Updates for WPBF and GeneratePress Themes.

Page Builders are clunky and slow to use… how many time have you heard this? Probably from folks yet to bump into Beaver Builder. Besides the current goodness, upcoming Beaver Builder version will feature insta load feature that will open setting boxes and forms with lightning speed.

Super fast Beaver Builder

Upcoming Beaver Builder 2.0 will feature super fast (almost instant) loading of setting forms. Check this video for the preview of “insta load” settings. You can test drive this feature by installing Beaver Builder 2.0-alpha.3 version (only on development setup).

Justin Busa explains this feature: “We’ve completely rewritten the settings forms in JavaScript so they don’t need to be loaded from the server anymore. The only time something needs to load is if you’re using a third party add-on that introduces legacy PHP fields. We’ll have docs on the new JavaScript settings APIs when 2.0 is released and hope that all major add-on authors will convert their fields to JavaScript so everything loads instantly!”
