Pods is a free solution for creating custom fields, Custom Post Types, and custom taxonomies. It has 20 field types. There is some templating ability and conditional logic available using Pods templates, shortcodes, and “magic tags.”
It has the option for storing the custom fields of a Custom Post Type is a separate database table, which would be a performance boost for large data sets. Development has been slow and feature-wise the plugin has fallen behind. This has led the main developer to create premium addons for better page builder integration.
