      Description

      We are making our UI more and more with extension points. That's a good thing. But it's a bit difficult to mix UI extensions with static code defined in templates.

      Example: https://github.com/xwiki/xwiki-platform/blob/6203f795144fad76f9607000b3ad0adf2291efef/xwiki-platform-core/xwiki-platform-flamingo/xwiki-platform-flamingo-skin/xwiki-platform-flamingo-skin-resources/src/main/resources/flamingo/menus_content.vm#L59-59

      A simpler method would be to allow the creation of a UI extensions directly in the templates (either in /templates or in /skins), so that it would be very easy to mix both UI code.
