JavaScript Embedding

The library inlines <script> tags with the block template. You probably want to configure \SilverStripe\View\Requirements\Requirements::set_force_js_to_bottom(true) in your project's _config.php. This avoids auto-inlining all other <script> tags.


This library follows Semver. According to Semver, you will be able to upgrade to any minor or patch version of this library without any breaking changes to the public API. Semver also requires that we clearly define the public API for this library.

All methods, with public visibility, are part of the public API. All other methods are not part of the public API. Where possible, we'll try to keep protected methods backwards-compatible in minor/patch versions, but if you're overriding methods then please test your work before upgrading.
