Using acf/init

add_action('acf/init', 'my_acfe_modules');
function my_acfe_modules(){

    // enable developer mode
    acf_update_setting('acfe/dev', true);

Using acfe/init

add_action('acfe/init', 'my_acfe_modules');
function my_acfe_modules(){
    // enable developer mode
    acfe_update_setting('dev', true);

Using wp-config.php file

// enable developer mode
define('ACFE_DEV', true);

Hide The Module

ACF Extended use the native ACF setting show_admin to determine if the module should be displayed or not. You can read more about that setting on the ACF article How to hide ACF menu from clients. Usage example:

add_filter('acf/settings/show_admin', '__return_false');
