Silverstripe module allowing creation of custom filters through the admin interface and then assigning to an object.
Module to allow creation of "Filters" that can be mapped to data
The idea is that we then add ability to render these filters to front

The Filter Menu can be loaded into a template using the template
This generates a menu of available filters and options
The "filterby" action returns a result set of objects, based on the
relations you stipulate via Filterable::add().

This will allow you to create several different styled filters,
depending on the controller.
Create a template called FilterBy.ss in your Layout directory.
