class EntityType

Defines an Entity type annotation object.

Entity type plugins use an object-based annotation method, rather than an array-type annotation method (as commonly used on other annotation types). The annotation properties of entity types are found on \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityType and are accessed using get/set methods defined in \Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityTypeInterface.
