In magento2 to override template files here, but for magento2 extension we have to follow here.

So how to override template files in magento2 extension with out considering theme inheritance.

I want to override vendor\magento\module-ui\view\base\web\js\form\components\collection.js and vendor\magento\module-ui\view\base\web\templates\form\components\collection.html for customer address tab modifications.

With using theme inheritance i can do this by implementing above files in my custom theme files in Magento_Ui folder, but how could I achieve the same for magento2 extension i.e. with in app/code/vendor/module folder.

As far as I know, we can override js and html template via requirejs config. In our module, we create requirejs-config.js under view/frontend or view/adminhtml. For example, in your case:


var config = {
    map: {
        '*': {

We can find the path of js and html files under pub/static.

In our module, create our custom js and html template:

app/code/{Vendor}/{Module_Name}/view/frontend/web/js/form/components/collection.js app/code/{Vendor}/{Module_Name}/view/frontend/web/template/form/components/collection.html

The most important thing is that after running static content deploy command, the js and html template files under web/js and web/template will be 'copied' to pub/static. For example, Magento Ui module:

enter image description here

Magento will get the js and html templates from pub/static. The all require config from requirejs-config.js will be also generated in pub/static/_requirejs. It handles the loading of js and html template files. So, requirejs helps us to override html template files.

    ".js" is not needed and don't work, just 'Magento_Ui/js/form/components/collection': 'Vendor_ModuleName/js/form/components/collection'
