Injecting javascript from a module without a view

I have an Orchard module which when enabled I want to inject a java script into the head of every page. 

Is there a way to do this from the module without overriding one of the base views (like document.cshtml or layout.cshtml) in the module?

Is there a place in code that I could call Script.Include().AtHead(), like from a handler or something?

I resolved this by implementing my own FilterProvider...


    public class MyCustomFilter : FilterProvider, IResultFilter
        private readonly IResourceManager _resourceManager;

        public MyCustomFilter(IResourceManager resourceManager) {
                _resourceManager = resourceManager;

        public void OnResultExecuting(ResultExecutingContext filterContext) {

            // Should only run on a full view rendering result
            if (!(filterContext.Result is ViewResult))

            // Include the following script on all pages
            _resourceManager.Require("script", "My.Custom.Script").AtFoot();

        public void OnResultExecuted(ResultExecutedContext filterContext) {


Then in my ResourceManifest.cs class in my module I just ensure I have defined the My.Custom.Script...

        public void BuildManifests(ResourceManifestBuilder builder)
            var manifest = builder.Add();
