    referencing plugin javascript files

    No need to download an example in this case, it's part of LMS ;-)

    referencing plugin javascript files

    I am finding it very difficult to predictably locate my own javascript libraries.

    for example my plugin is located on path

    Cache\InstalledPlugins\Plugins\SqueezeDSP\HTML\EN\ plugins\SqueezeDSP\index.html

    I have two libraries sqdsp_data.js and sqdsp_controls.js which manage calls to the server and populate controls.

    if I locate them in the same folder relative to the index.html file and enter a path
    <script type="text/javascript" src="sqdsp_data.js"></script>

    or

    <script type="text/javascript" src="./sqdsp_data.js"></script>

    the files do not seem to be picked up.

    Can you confirm where I should be locating these files relative to the above path?

    For now I have embedded the scripts within index.html and the code is working, but I don't like this approach.

      create another folder html below where you have index.html. Yes, it's
      awful, but the html (lowercase) sub folder would be served as static files.

      > <script type="text/javascript" src="sqdsp_data.js"></script>


      This then should become "html/sqdsp_data.js".

        no wonder I couldn't figure it out!

          So the new html folder should be on this path

          Cache\InstalledPlugins\Plugins\SqueezeDSP\HTML\EN\ plugins\html\sqdsp_data.js

          and I should be able to reference it via

          <script type="text/javascript" src= "html/sqdsp_data.js"></script>

          I have tried this and it is not working. If you can confirm whether I have the above correct, if so it will be something else.

            Try something like the following in your page template:

            [% webroot %]plugins/SqueezeDSP/html/sqdsp_data.js

            This should create an absolute path to the file.

              What I did in the past when starting on plugin development was downloads lots of existing plugins and then search for something similar.

              You could download and search to see who has separate JS files and then see where they are and how they invoke them.

                I spent an hour trying to figure this out looking at another plugin, and it was staring me right in the face the whole time

                At the top of my page ...

                <a href="[% webroot %]plugins/SqueezeDSP/index.html?player=[% player | uri %]">

                Anyway it is working now, thanks for the pointers.
