SAPUI5 custom component with HTML as resource



Currently I'm diving into creating custom controls for SAPUI5 applications, as described in this excellent blog from Phillip Smith for example. What I notice is that each custom control has a renderer method in which its HTML code is build up with RenderManager methods like write for example.

But is it also possible to load the HTML from a project resource first and then apply attributes and processing based on RenderManager and Control attributes?

Usage case: transform HTML templates delivered by Design Team into SAPUI5 custom controls. I want to prevent transforming whole HTML documents to oRm.write function calls.

Thanks in advance!
