Coming from a Drupal 7 background but wanting to do more work with WordPress, I am looking for ideas on how people approach "the things that you would normally use Drupal views for".
For any WordPressers that are unfamiliar with views, I'll try and explain it in once sentence: it is a UI that allows you to run queries on your DB and format these nicely on the screen.
Tools with a GUI are nice, though not necessary - I'd be happy coding stuff. Just thinking that it would be great if there was a framework / set of libraries that I could use, to avoid too much wheel reinvention.
To give a bit of context: I'm creating the data entry part of a monitoring and evaluation system. We'll most likely use Caldera forms for the actual data entry but I want to create a customized dashboard that front end users of the site (without any other access to CiviCRM) that will give an overview to users of what they need to do and point them towards the forms that they need to fill in, etc. Happy to provide more details if that would be helpful.
Tips and tricks and examples are very welcome.
