It is well understood within the tech community that most of our executives started out as being highly technical; in the trenches writing code for 15 hours a day. Like many journeyman professions, the more successful you are at your skillset, the more likely you’ll be rewarded with larger, higher profile, projects. The master developers among us are often asked to lead within our organizations and eventually take on such diverse responsibilities as scrum leader, mentor, technical lead, and eventually, the role of technology executive.
If you need a simple Views display switch to toggle e.g between a list and a grid display of a view, there are a couple of plug & play options already.
Display Suite and Quick Tabs are modules which provide this functionality but they seem to be quite an overkill for a simple display switch. View modes on the other hand seems to be exactly what is needed, however there is no stable version and the development one did not work for me.
How it needs to work
Our use case dictates that the filters and the page number have to stay intact while switching to a different views display. The page will be reloaded, no AJAX magic here.
Moving content between different environments is a need for many big companies that have a Drupal site and content that should be created, reviewed, edited and published on different environments. Although Drupal 8 is not yet released, a content staging solution is already in the works. Dick Olsson (dixon_ on drupal.org) and I are working on this solution together and we aim to release an alpha version soon.
Most developers know how to do these, but a lot of people follow the temptation and skip them in the rush to go live.
These simple steps reassure future developers and clients that you know what you are doing, subsequently increasing your value with just a few minutes of work.
All which means you can charge more and book more clients, both of which lead to the ability to do more of the things you love that are just for fun!
