Selectively extending JS / CSS component

Hey there,

I wanted to have a simple plugin adding subresource integrity hashes to <link> and <script> tags for safer CDN usage (eg, in combination with Kirby’s official cdn-plugin).

I quickly ended up with a plugin (source) and some promising results. It’s based on Kirby’s CSS / JS components, except for two things:

1. Cache-busting

Accomplished with lines 33, 36 and 44-47, taken from @iksi’s plugin kirby-fingerprint:

2. Subresource integrity

Hash generation is achieved by the checksum function inside kirby-sri-hash.php

… which is then called to output a proper hash for the file being processed:

3. Question:

Now, what I want to achieve is the following:
Get the SRI hash (like shown above) and then passing it to the $attr array of all options that are passed to the corresponding css/js html::tag, like so:

BUT what I couldn’t figure out was, how to do it in a fashion that I don’t have to repeat / incorporate techniques from other cache-bust plugins (like cachebuster by @bastianallgeier and @lukasbestle or aforementioned kirby-fingerprint by @iksi), but BUILDING ON whatever people have installed - well, applying my function to whatever CSS/JS class is being used (vanilla or modified).

Thus, I call upon thee, mighty gods of Kirby forum (to my knowledge, the only ones I haven’t mentioned so far are @jenstornell and of course @texnixe).

And thank you for making Kirby the great software it is.

You can only extend a single class and then modify/overwrite its methods, not parts of these methods.

Alright then, if there’s no way marrying them, I’ll keep it that way. Thank you!

Anywhoozle, do you think people could use a plugin like this? In that case, I’ll publish a forum post and add it to Jens’ repository.

Don’t know, but yes, do publish it. Maybe explain what it does in some detail and what is does better than similar plugins (added value).
