Supported data vendors

Out-of-the-box, the Advanced Views Framework supports over 130 field types from 5 different data vendors.

What does out-of-the-box support mean?

Out-of-the-box support in the Advanced Views Framework means that it will automatically generate default markup for supported fields. During rendering, it will also automatically read data from the database, convert it to the correct format, and pass it to the template.

Advanced Views Framework doesn't put any limitations on the vendors listed below. You can pass any data, including data obtained from any API, to the template using the Custom Data feature.
