Developing to the Views 7.3 API - slides from DDDB

Submitted by Frederic Marand on

Now that Drupalcon Chicago is over, I found some time to fix the slides from my session at the Drupal Dev Days in Brussels. It took some time because neither Google Presentations nor Slideshare apparently like the MgOpen font family.

The presentation is now on Slideshare at

The progressive code samples are attached to this blog entry, as a tarred Git repository.

To use them, checkout each tag in turn: for the first exercise: git checkout demo1-hva

then for the second: git checkout demo2-hvd

and so on until demo5-area. The list of samples goes like this:

  • demo1-hva: hook_views_api
  • demo2-hvd: hook_views_data
  • demo3-hvdv: hook_views_default_views
  • demo4-access: access plugin
  • demo5-area: area handler

Contrary to what I said during the presentation and what the documentation says, hook_views_pre_render() actually runs before the field handlers pre_render methods, not after them.
