I want to include an optional template part in the theme which requires some jQuery plugin. Is it ok to include the wp_enqueue_script in that specific file? Or it should always be included in the functions.php file?

Also, is it ok to write some javascript code in that specific file? The script works, but my question is about WordPress coding standard.

I prefer to enqueue it to the get_template_part_{$slug} action to keep all the scripts in one place & more organized. But you can do it either way you like
