As I have been continuing down the rabbit-hole that is Discourse dev, I came to something that I could use some clarification on if possible. I could be missing something extremely obvious, but here’s where I need some help:
If I print out
Object.keys(attrs) in a
createWidget(), I get a list like:
I have a few questions:
How are widget attributes established? It seems like each
createWidget()has its own set of attributes and I’m having trouble tracking down where they come from and how they are determined.
How do I get an attribute that isn’t a part of a widget’s
attrsby default? For example, in the above list, how would I add
trust_levelto that attribute object?
Can the addition of an attribute be done in the context of a theme component or would it require a proper plugin or modifying core Discourse?
I can provide more details on the exact scenario that prompted these questions if that helps. I just wanted to keep it brief if I can.
Also worth mentioning, I’ve read the “Rendering Attributes” section of A tour of how the Widget (Virtual DOM) code in Discourse works and still haven’t quite found the answers for my specific scenario.
