New Display Suite toys: Views displays and ND Location

We've been quite busy with Display Suite since the first release. A lot of issues have been fixed and fieldgroups integration, the number one feature request by anyone out there, is almost done. We also created two new, rather small - but cool - modules which integrate perfectly with DS.

  • ND location: integrates with the location and Gmap modules. All location properties will be exposed as separate fields and you get an extra field which opens the marker info window on google maps, ideal for an overview page. We'll add a few other cool goodies to make this module rock even harder than it already does.
  • Views displays: all variables in the views.tpl.php are now 'fields' which you can put in the default set of regions. Extra fields/data are now very ease to add to your views displays.

You can see the power when combining these 2 modules in this short screencast. You can also click around on our demo site, still on the same URL, at

I am defenitly checking ds out on my next project. This seems the way forward in drupal theming. Thanks for all your hard work!

This is cool. A question, though: I followed the screencast but I can't seem to grasp where the "Open Gmap" field comes from. So I ended up with a view just like yours except it doesn't show the map! :P Any ideas?
