This is all knew to me but I have spent a couple of weeks scratching, digging and using the google machine.
I have developed and Installed a new plugin that inserts new tables into the database
using all the rules in the existing videos. I now have some nice new tables. I have also
injecting and consuming new services wrapping my data layer. All good so far! Got routing
I have created views within the plugin and that's fine!
Next I have created a custom theme and got up a site using view over - rides as in several examples.
Check! Created new controllers and routes within the theme. Yea all good ! Yea!
Now, using "custom view engine" as described - I can easily reach views in my theme from my
plugin. Using routing on buttons, I can reach my plugin controller from my theme, so I can
pass form data to my plugin.
I want to house my views in my theme cause that's where my custom layouts live.
I want to use a plugin cause that is how I insert my additional tables.
1 . I cannot figure out how to share viewmodels between the too areas.
2. I cannot see any data service wrappers in the theme that I inject in the plugin. They seem to be local to the plugin ??
and I can consume them in the plugin. I can see the build-in services in the theme views, but not not the ones created by the plugin.
3. Creating views in the plugin seems to work, but I cannot figure how to access my theme layouts.
4. I have noticed some verbiage about "templates" that I haven't studied, is this a way to share layouts?
Somewhere I am missing something fundamental. Any body who can set me straight will be my friend for ever.
