Data Pipelines and Filter Chaining

Introduced in Version 04.00.00

Some basics

  1.  Data is stored in the database...
  2. ...and is cached in Memory on the web server
  3. When you need data, you request a DataSource from the cache...
  4. ...and using some filters (usually Filter-DataSources) request a subset of all data
  5. These pipeline-pieces can also be "chained" so you can first filter by type, then by Gender and finally sort by last-name

This is basically how it works (needs Razor):

// A source which can filter by Content-Type (EntityType)

var allAuthors = CreateSource<ToSic.Eav.DataSources.EntityTypeFilter>();

allAuthors.TypeName = "Authors";
