What files need to be changed to display additional attributes in recently view products widget?

In the widget settings there is only name, price, image and learn_more available.

For the product attribute name i've spotted the file


<column name="name" component="Magento_Catalog/js/product/name" sortOrder="1" displayArea="details-area">
        <label translate="true">Name</label>

and vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/base/web/template/product/name.html:

<strong if="isAllowed()"
    <a attr="href: $row().url" html="$col.getLabel($row())"/>

I'm really confused about the $col.getLabel($row()), is there any documentation out there that covers this functionality?

What files needs to be changed for adding delivery_time or sku to the widget and where to put them?

Any help would appreciated

I managed to figure this out (albeit using reviews as a source of inspiration). This has been tested and is working on Magento 2.3.3

<strong if="isAllowed($row())"
   class="product sku">
    <span class="label" text="label" />
    <span class="value" text="getValue($row())" />

One thing you'll need to bear in mind is that recently viewed stores data in browser storage when an item is viewed - it won't update the data that is already there with your new attributes. So when testing please remember to clear your browser storage! (Speaking from experience, this tripped me up for quite a while)

EDIT: Show how to render both label and value in the .html file

  • Thank you very much Dan for that detailed answer and your experiences. I'll check that out as soon as possible :-)

    Thank you a lot! It works fine and saved my debugging time. An only error I face related to setter method on Magento\Catalog\Api\Data\ProductRenderExtension::setSku but I resolved it by adding a sequence of Magento_Catalog in my module XML file. Upvote for this definately. Sep 12, 2020 at 7:35
