I would like a way to do this with the partial tag helper.

What I'm looking for is a nicer more declarative approach to Templated Razor Delegates

In Any old Razor Page or View - SomePage.cshtml

  <partial name="Shared/_PartialLayout" for="SomeModel">
    <strong>Content</strong> that will be injected into the layout, which 
    will get rendered here.

Creativity, Inc.: Overcoming the Unseen Forces That Stand in the Way of True Inspiration

Ed Catmull, Amy Wallace

When it comes to creative inspiration, job titles and hierarchy are meaningless.

Sincerely believing that we were in an inclusive meeting, we saw nothing amiss because we didn’t feel excluded.

My willingness to do this reflected my world-view, forged in academia, that any hard problem should have many good minds simultaneously trying to solve it.

For all the care you put into artistry, visual polish frequently doesn’t matter if you are getting the story right.
