    Hi guys,

    Just installed v1.0.0 and really impressed with the additional modularity for extensions in the UI, specifically with placeholders in twig.

    I have a suggestion to make things more modular. On the OroCRM contact page, I can add placeholders to the ‘Additional Information’ section by my bundle’s placeholders.yml – this is great.

    Taking this a step further, I’d like to add my own section to this page, are there plans for being able to do this via placeholders too?

    Desired result is something like this https://twitter.com/sweettooth/status/451076461596639232/photo/1 (we’ve had to bundle inheritance for this which has potential to conflict with other extensions, ew)

    I think giving devs the ability to add dataBlocks like in Oro/Bundle/UIBundle/Resources/views/actions/view.html.twig line 121 through a placeholder-like config would be awesome.

    Thanks

    You are right, current flexibility of entity views and forms is limited to template override approach and will be a problem in case of multiple extends. We are planning to refactor this in nearest future and allow user to control page layout and elements (fields) as well as allow developer to inject additional sections and blocks without overriding a template.
