Crazy Tricks with Views

Dive into the more complex ways the Views module can be used to create content lists with robust functionality. We’ll walk you through a year’s worth of Drupal 8 projects that had their own unique quirks and desires, and show you the little intricacies, roadblocks, and landmines we came across, and solutions not found in documentation. Come learn the creative ways we used to blow through (and beyond) the limitations of Drupal 8 Views and its integrations with other modules.

Through case studies and examples, this presentation will highlight how to:

  • Create faceted search views that go beyond the out-of-the-box widgets
  • Manipulate results using pre and post-execute view hooks
  • Create exposed dropdown filters and custom fields using the Views Plugin architecture
  • Create a “switcher” that allows visitors to display one view in many different ways
