Admin Custom Files

Why not just add the file via hook? https://processwire.com/talk/topic/20725-add-possibility-to-prepend-or-append-scripts-and-stylesheets-in-admin/?do=findComment&comment=211800

$wire->addHookBefore('AdminTheme::getExtraMarkup', function (HookEvent $event) {
  $config = $this->wire->config;
  $url = $config->urls("MyModule");

@adrian I'd ask you to rethink recommending AOS for such simple tasks as adding scripts to the admin. I know you are a big fan of it, but the only reason I see for using AOS or ACF is if you don't know how to place a hook to your system. But if you are able to do that, it is a lot better to copy a 4line hook than adding another dependency to your site.

The hook will likely work without any problems for several years... AOS is already unmaintained and has introduced problems to several of my sites that where quite hard to find...

It would be even better of course to put that hook into a dedicated simple module that does everything that the injected script is for ?

@bernhard - I completely agree that there is no point using AOS for just this purpose. That was my intention by saying "if you are already running" in my comment above. 

I know it's unmaintained, but with the features I use from it, I haven't noticed any bugs - I am sure there are likely some features that are buggy. The problem is that I really struggle to use PW without it.

Just an FYI - when it was first being developed, I thought it was a crazy idea - way too hard to maintain and make stable with all those features, but it works for my needs, but I completely agree it's not something that should be recommended for one simple feature like this.

the root relative url is presumably "/processwire_test1/site/templates/libraries/path-to-some-file.js" but the module outputs this:


FWIW, I came across a similar problem with my DbMigrate module. In my case, it happened if the admin root was not just /processwire/. My solution was to use $pages->get(2) rather than $urls->admin for the admin root. This may be completely irrelevant in your case, of course ?
