Is it possible to display a view of a component without iframe and plugin? (That is to say, if possible with a few lines of PHP and maybe SQL queries?)

To be more clear: I'd like to do it directly in the PHP-Template! (Would be fine to do it in an article as well, as I have written a PHP-function showArticle(mixed $ident))

(I'm using Joomla 3.5)

I'd like to do something like

<jdoc:include type="component" view="example" name="position-x" />


    show_component('component-name', 'view-name');

Check an extension called "Components Anywhere" by Regular Labs. It works by adding the following text werever you want to load your component:

{component url/of/the/component}

And no, there's no out of box solution.
