[Neos] A question to the neos core team about TypoScriptView and rendering a page standalone

Hi Simon

Not sure what the best approach to this issue is. However I would probably try to tackle it like this:

If the need is to render a specific page in a module with the same output as the frontend then I would probably make a sub request to the node controller and let that handle it. Or you could try to set the view of your module to use the TypoScript view, because then you would do almost the same as the node controller and then you'd already have a controller context. Another solution could be to create your own sub request to a custom controller which has view set to TypoScriptView. And finally a solution could be to inject the controllerContext of your module to your initiated view, but I'm not sure if that will work out since the TypoScriptView doesn't extend the standalone view.

And then take into account the stuff Christian mentioned.
