The code defines how the content will be rendered and styled among other things.

Install Apache (WebServer):

Version 4.x - Exported view ready to import

Attached a compressed file with 4 files:

How to programmatically add a product variation to the cart in Drupal commerce 2.x (Drupal 8)

Playing a bit with Drupal commerce in Drupal 8, we notice that several functions that we used to use in the past with D7 are gone in D8, or they've had several changes, dued to the new API.

Drupal commerce has lots of changes. The new concept give us more flexibility and features (for example, we don't need a content type to display our products, because they have now their own display page, the product variations are now in commerce core, or the Store concept.).


The TableField module provides a simple, generic form/widget to input tabular data. The form allows the user to select the number of rows/columns in the table, then enter the data via text fields. Since this is a field it is revision capable,multi-value capable and has integration with Views.

Viewfield 8.x-3.x

The Viewfield module defines an entity reference field type to display a view. Viewfield enables an administrator or content author to integrate a views display into any fieldable entity, such as content, users or paragraphs. In addition, through the use of the Always use default value setting, the same view(s) may automatically be placed into all entities in a bundle. Viewfield has considerable theming support, making it easy to customize presentation.
