For obvious reasons, we need to create a D8 version of this module. Drupal 8 handles javascript very differently, via libraries, so this will need to be more than a straight port of the D7 version.

Proposed resolution

Build upon two new architectures in D8: Asset libraries and Configuration. Give admins the ability to organize their script snippets into libraries and apply the placement rules on a library basis.

Remaining tasks

Add to this list as needed:
- Configuration/Admin Page
- Library Attachment

User interface changes

Rather than a draggable/weight based design, use the new library dependency feature to order script loading.

Data model changes

Store library configuration in configuration entities.
Store JS snippets in files.
-- Event Subscriber to ConfigEvents::IMPORT and create snippet files on import or config save.

Finally have space to begin to move forward. Here's what I'm thinking for an admin interface:

This gives a hint at the library config ui:
