Description

Sometimes it is needed or can be very helpful to do processing on the $data variable of a content element. Some content elements, provided by the core, are using constructs which Fluid can not handle out of the box, like tt_content.table. The contents of the table is entered in the field 'bodytext' as a CSV string. It would be great when this string is transformed into an array before sending it to the view. Using a viewhelper for this is architectural not a good solution.

We should introduce a way to connect your own data processors to the content object using TypoScript, like

my_custom_ctype = FLUIDTEMPLATE
my_custom_ctype {
    templateName = CustomName
    settings {
        extraParam = 1
    }
    dataProcessing {
        1 = TYPO3/CMS/Frontend/DataProcessing/MyFirstCustomProcessor
        2 = TYPO3/CMS/Frontend/DataProcessing/MySecondCustomProcessor
        2 {
            options {
                myOption = SomeValue
            }
        }
    }
}

This way the data processing is extendible and can be called by multiple extensions if necessary. Using TypoScript instead of a hook makes it more flexible and better understandable for integrators.
