Detailed Description

Overview of views plugins

Views plugins are objects that are used to build and render the view. See individual views plugin topics for more information about the specifics of each plugin type, and the Plugin API topic for more information about plugins in general.

Some Views plugins are known as handlers. Handler plugins help build the view query object: filtering, contextual filtering, sorting, relationships, etc.
