Page specific template in page folder?

Is it possible to put a page-specific template inside the page/ folder, instead of polluting the template/ folder with a page-specific file? In other words: for a specific page how can I specify the location of the template instead of using the implicit template/ folder as the location?

This is not possible as the pages, are simply content. However, you can create a very simple plugin that contains a list of your ‘custom’ templates. I do this often while testing:

namespace Grav\Plugin;

use \Grav\Common\Plugin;

class TestingPlugin extends Plugin

    public static function getSubscribedEvents()
        return [
            'onTwigTemplatePaths' => ['onTwigTemplatePaths', 0]

    public function onTwigTemplatePaths()
        $this->grav['twig']->twig_paths[] = __DIR__ . '/templates';

Then just create a templates/ folder in your plugin and drop any extra twig templates in there.
