This PR provides on demand loading of a plugin's Vue module, so it does not have to be loaded on each page load.

To set a plugin's Vue module to be loaded on demand you'd have to:

  • override Plugin::shouldLoadUmdOnDemand() and return true
  • if the plugin defines angularjs adapters, move them all to a separate file manually included via the AssetManager event and set the component property to a reference like { plugin: 'MyPluginName', component: 'MyComponentName' }.

If you need to use a plugin that's loaded like this in another plugin, you won't be able to import as you would normally. Instead you'll need to use the importPluginUmd method:

import { importPluginUmd } from 'CoreHome';

importPluginUmd('TagManager').then((module: typeof import('TagManager')) => {
  // ...

Note: that adapters for stores or anything that gets added via angular(...).adapter will not be available, so making a plugin load on demand is a potential BC break. For TagManager this is acceptable since the old models weren't meant to be reused.

To see a plugin that uses this, see: https://github.com/matomo-org/tag-manager/pull/461

Adding this to the current milestone, but I'm not sure when it is desired to include it.

@diosmosis would you mind rebasing that one to 5.x-dev? We've decided not to put that into the last 4.x release to lower the risk of regressions we might need to fix. Also we will have more time to test that, after it was merge to 5.x-dev...

@sgiehl should be up to date w/ 5.x-dev

@diosmosis Could you check the failing UI tests? Seems the language selection is no longer visible in installation and updater. Seems there is a javascript error in that case.
