Perform backend customisations with themes

Hi community,

I just wanted to know if someone have information about possibility of doing customisations like this ones discourse-tooltips/tooltip_previews_controller.rb at master · discourse/discourse-tooltips · GitHub from a theme project. I haven’t found information yet about it and don’t know if the only possibility is through plugins.

In other words, I have a project like GitHub - discourse/discourse-knowledge-base-theme and I want to do things like discourse-tooltips/tooltip_previews_controller.rb at master · discourse/discourse-tooltips · GitHub

Thanks in advance.

Yeah that’s only possible in a plugin. Themes are generally limited to modifying the frontend of Discourse.
