It is said to enable the core module "Quick Edit" to be able to easily edit nodes, but there still isn't an easy way to add inline editing in Views. All I want is for text fields to show as inputs which I can change, and then press edit at the bottom. Exactly what is currently achieved with "editablefields" for Drupal 7.

Is there a way to do this in Drupal 8?

Note: Basically my question is the same as this, but for Drupal 8.


Quick Edit of nodes in Views works. You can see this on the frontpage, which is a View.

However this works only for Views which show content.

If you have a View which shows content and want to choose the fields and customize the layout, you can create a custom viewmode, configure the fields there and put the layout in the twig files of the view mode.

Of course this does not provide all features of a View which shows fields and the module Editablefields. For this you would have to wait until this module is ported to D8.

    I have my view as a table, but nowhere do I see a way to easily quick edit? – coderama Nov 15 '16 at 8:47

    You can sum up my answer in two options: 1) Configure the View as content and put the table markup in twig files. 2) Wait for Editablefields – 4k4 Nov 15 '16 at 9:44
