Description Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-07-31 21:20:04 UTC
Consider  It would be tremendously
useful on all sorts of pages . . . but it requires 6 KB of Javascript to be
included.  Not good.  Consider, however, if the code could be added by an admin
to a special namespace, say [[Include:Sorttable.js]], and then the text
"{{Include:Sorttable.js}}" would add that page's wikitext to the page in
question via a <script> in the header?  Any page where a sortable table would be
used could include that, for great increase and functionality with no needless
bandwidth loss.

Obviously, only certain specially-designated pages could be included, namely
ones in the Include: namespace.  The file would presumably be Javascript, but it
could be applied to CSS as well if that would be useful to someone.

Now feasible thanks to ParserOutput::$mHeadItems et al.

Yes, Bug 31958 (marked as duplicate) contains some scenarios. The above-mentioned include namespace should be the existing Mediawiki: namespace, but what is still missing is a parserfunction that injects a javascript from Mediawiki-namespace into a specific article page, to support custom functionalities developed by the community according to community needs for specific purposes.
