This seems to be the biggest negative about Meta Box and a frequent issue for a lot of developers… Distributing Meta Box with our projects.
For me, it’s not about sticking something in the repository or even selling a premium plugin, it’s just about having to go through 15+ steps every time I build a new web site in order to get everything installed so that my own plugin will work. And Composer (if it works) is great, but Meta Box really needs to be rebuilt so that it can be distributed much more easily.
Maybe that’s a separate premium product, Meta Box as a library instead of a plugin. I’d pay ANOTHER couple hundred dollars for that.
At the very least it’s gotta be made easier to install the core plugin and all of the premium addons. If I put my license key in Meta Box AIO, it should access my account and let me install/activate the premium addons as well as the free ones.
