I am extending a functionality of CMS and I need to add my javascript and CSS. I use:


When I put it into getCMSFields(), or Controller::init(), or wherever else inside my class, then they are not loaded by default. I have to click on my page, then reload CMS. I can put Requirements to _config.php, but then they will be loaded even when the user will be browsing the final pages. I want to load them only when the admin CMS is open.

Is the only proper place CMSMain::init()?

There's a limitation with the system, and you have to add them in CMSMain as you said.
