My case is to create News page and widget with latest 2 news on a Home page, this widget also should contain link to News page. Like this:

Obvious way for me to create my custom list type with Container part and ShowAllLinkCaption textbox, after I can create news containable type. Container widget shows top 2 news on Home page and allows to get slug to news page by list.

In case of Projection I can create projection for News page, and Projection Widget to show 2 news by one News Query, but how to get News Projection slug in this case?

As I see there is no way to associate widget with projection.

My question is: Am I missing something, or Lists is still useful in cases like my?
