Style plugins are responsible for determining how to output a set of rows. Individual rows are rendered by row plugins. Drupal core provides style plugins that include grid, HTML list, table, and unordered list styles. If you need to render the results in a different way, for example as tabs or accordions, or have special markup based on your project requirements, you may want to write a custom style plugin for Views. The advantage of this approach versus overriding the templates in a theme is that you may reuse this plugin in different views throughout the site, or even on different sites.
In this tutorial we'll:
- Learn how to create a custom Views style plugin and render output in the form of an accordion using the HTML5
- Demonstrate how to use a custom style plugin when building a view.
By the end of this tutorial you should know how to declare custom Views style plugins.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
