Now that we have these HtmlHelper extensions, we can emulate MVC’s native RenderSection (not available in Sitecore – try it, you’ll see!) and essentially “inject” script blocks into a specific place (i.e. the bottom!) of your main layout.
In your rendering, you can include a script library:
@Html.Resource(@<script src="~/scripts/myscriptlibrary.js"></script>, "js")
…or a custom script block:
If you had a script block field in a content item in Sitecore, you could even render that directly from your model:
Then, in your layout, you would include the RenderResources helper method to render any Resources defined:
This is how we satisfied the requirement for our project. Derek Hunziker also provides an alternative approach that utilizes Sitecore’s HTML Cache.
Happy Sitecore trails, my friends!
