Use the template system for Javascript (like we do for CSS)?


Well-known member
Hi - me again!

I was just curious, is it possible to use the template system for custom javascript files, like we do with CSS?

(e.g can we do something like <xen:require js="somefile.js" /> where 'somefile.js' is a template?)

Not an issue if we cant - just curious to know if it was possible.

No, JS requires include JS files from the system. If you want to include a JS template, you'd have to just include it. Ideally though, you shouldn't be embedding JS inline. It's generally preferable to have it loaded via a separate file and called via CSS-style selectors. (Obviously, there are certain situations where JS is or should be embedded, but in our case, they're infrequent.)
