I wanted to create a node view containing both the original node and its translation, sort of like this neat Meedan.net page.
It's no secret that version control on Drupal is hard. Specifically, the problem of iteratively building a site on a staging server, then moving it to a running production system has been the source of countless wasted hours, lost data, pulled hair, blog posts, and modules promising a solution. On Twitter, some would say #drupal #migration #fail.
This post is not the answer to this problem. I just want to show actual code that helps with a small part of it, namely keeping views under version control.
