!!! ALPHA FUNCTION – NEEDS TESTING/BENCHMARKING


Description Description

Get User data with meta keys’ value

In some cases we need to loop a lot of users’ data. If we need 1000 user with there user meta values we would normally run WP User Query, then loop the user and run get_user_meta() on each iteration which will return the specified user meta and also collect/store ALL the user meta. In case above, WP will run 1 query for the user loop and 1000 user meta queries; 1001 queries will run. WP will also store all the data collected in memory, if each user has 100 metas stores then 1000 x 100 metas is 100 000 values.

With this function if we run the same scenrio as above, 2 quieries will run and only the amount of data points that are specifically needed. 1000 users

Todo Maybe add optional transient Todo Benchmarking needed

Only Returns this first meta_key value. Does not support multiple meta_values per single key.
