Description

In this series, we cover the ins and outs of writing modules that implement the Views API. This series will take an in-depth look at exposing your own database tables to the Views module so that users can use them as a place from which to pull content, including the fields themselves and meta-data about how they can be used to create relationships to other content on your site. After getting the basics out of the way, we’ll also take a look at writing our own custom field handlers to expose our module’s data to Views so that it can be sorted, filtered, and queried in new ways. We’ll also look at implementing Views plugins to do things like add custom access control options to Views and add new output styles.
