Backend configurable filters

Hello everybody,
in spryker there are configurable filters in backend. AFAIK these are just usable for reducing the search result (drill down).
Is there also a similar functionality for displaying attributes on a pdp? We thought of adding the type (color, number, custom_type etc) for the specific attribute and let yves render the attribute based on that value.
What capabilities has spryker here?

    Sorry, maybe I am not precious enough. Ideally we are searching for a way to define what type an attribute is of … afaik at the moment its just possible to define a key and a value.
    For example attr.color as super attribute … for this attribute we want to have a certain color selection widget, but therefore we have to know that the attribute color should be rendered using this special color widget … how could this realized?
    I see in attributes management there are types defined like number, text, etc. … is this the point we have to extend? So adding a type “color”? Is the type already exported to storage so that we can use it in frontend?

    Yes that can be a good solution. Another way is the prefix/suffix the attribute key will the behavior you want to have. But I will prefer to extend the type.
