I would like for students in my class to be able to insert a set of checkboxes (I have installed GitHub - cpradio/discourse-plugin-checklist: A simple checklist rendering plugin for discourse) so that they can indicate that they have done whatever it is that they are supposed to have done for a given assignment.
The per-category template is not specific enough. I really need a per-topic template, but that seems unwieldy and of little use for Discourse’s main purpose.
My next step is to move those templates from a controller to system settings.
What I think I want is to be able to add template_name:template_text pairs. Another might be to create a special template category and have my code pull out subject:body for its templates.
I have approximately 24 hours of Discourse plugin development experience. I’d appreciate a hint in which direction to head and some code examples.
My plugin, such as it is, is available on github.
