GSoC 2018 Ideas: Bring back old-style resource registry

This is one post in a series to begin focused discussion about ideas that came out of our 2018 GSoC Brainstorm.

Please use this post as a place to begin to discuss this idea more in depth.

This idea was suggested by @hvelarde, who suggests that he, or anyone with knowledge of the internals of the new resource registry could potentially serve as mentors

The description:

The reource registry story in Plone 5 continues to be sad; the addoption of the new approach for add-ons developers is stagnated and this is hurting Plone as described originally in Plone github issue #1896. I propose to make JS and CSS registry work again on a simplified way and coexisting with the new resource registry.

Step on up, community, and flesh out this idea!


I prefer no to work in this idea in favor of this one:

That sounds reasonable. I'll see if I can "unpublish" this one.
