How to tell Views about your mongooses


This session is about the wonderful world of Views. You know how to make a View, and can display all kinds of fascinating data about mongooses with it, that's stored in some Drupal nodes. However! You have acquired some new data about mongooses, and have put it in a custom table. Whatever to do?

In this session I explain how to tell Views about all your new mongoose table (exposing a new table to Views), and explain the basics of writing Views handlers. I'll also explain the basics of how Views works internally, and what relationships and contextual filters and joins are, anyway.

This session assumes that you

  • can make a simple view
  • know what SELECT * from mongooses WHERE id=6 does
  • know what a hook is
