In Magento 1 I include js and css like this:

<action method="addJs"><script>lib/jquery/masterslider.min.js</script></action>
<action method="addCss"><stylesheet>css/masterslider.css</stylesheet></action>

But in Magento 2 this not works.

How correct add masterslider.min.js and masterslider.css to Magento 2 (slider for home page)? This html insert to home page (admin-panel):

<div class="master-slider ms-skin-default" id="masterslider">

    <div class="ms-slide" data-delay="10">

        <img src="media/blank.gif" data-src="media/001.jpg" alt="Test slide"/>     



    var slider = new MasterSlider();
    slider.setup('masterslider' , {
  • For a long time I am looking for a solution. Has anyone had experience of connecting the slider to the home page? – Sylon Dec 23 '16 at 5:12

This is correct way!

  1. Path: app/design/frontend/My-vendor/my-name-theme/web
  2. Add masterslider.min.js to app/design/frontend/My-vendor/my-name-theme/web/js
  3. Create requirejs-config.js to app/design/frontend/My-vendor/my-name-theme

    var config = { paths: { masterslider: 'js/masterslider.min', }, shim: { masterslider: { deps: ['jquery'] } } };

  4. Add masterslider.css to app/design/frontend/My-vendor/my-name-theme/web/css/source

  5. Use or create file _extend.less to app/design/frontend/My-vendor/my-name-theme/web/css/source Write in _extend.less this in the last row: @import 'masterslider.css';

  6. cd /var/www/domain/html rm -rf pub/static/* rm -rf var/view_preprocessed/* php /var/www/domain/html/bin/magento cache:clean php /var/www/domain/html/bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy en_US ru_RU php /var/www/domain/html/bin/magento cache:clean

  7. Call slider in content home page or in file phtml like this:


    ], function($) {
        jQuery(document).ready(function() {
            /* code slider */

  • from which place i need to copy masterslider.min.js or it is already available in magento 2 default themes – Hitesh Balpande Nov 5 '18 at 9:17

Add css and js from your frontend layout file

You need to add below code in app/code/Vendor/Modulename/frontend/layout/routname_controllername_action.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" layout="2columns-left" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <script src="Vendor_Modulename::js/your-js.js"/>
        <css src="Vendor_Modulename::css/your-css.css"/>

Your js and css path will be

app/code/Vendor/Modulename/frontend/web/css/your-css.css app/code/Vendor/Modulename/frontend/web/js/your-js.js

  • The code I need to write to a file app/code/Vendor/Modulename/frontend/requirejs-config.js? – Sylon Dec 21 '16 at 11:58
  • Updated answer with file path please check it – Prashant Valanda Dec 21 '16 at 12:00
  • Do I make the command setup:upgrade after? – Sylon Dec 21 '16 at 12:05
  • No you do not need that command if cache enable the run php bin/magento cache:flush and after that php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy – Prashant Valanda Dec 21 '16 at 12:27
  • I try, but not works on home page... – Sylon Dec 23 '16 at 3:35

You can add below code in you custom theme app\design\frontend\<vendor>\<theme>\Magento_Theme\layout\cms_index_index.xml\ file.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
   <page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
       <script src="js/your-js.js"/>
       <css src="css/your-css.css"/>

And you can add this file in app\design\frontend\<vendor>\<theme>\web\css and app\design\frontend\<vendor>\<theme>\web\js respected folder.

  • I have luma theme. – Sylon Dec 23 '16 at 13:28
  • I would never recommend to change the code inside a core module as this will cause issues with any magento updates in future. so Just create new custom theme check this doc to create custom theme How to create theme?. – Dipesh Rangani Dec 23 '16 at 13:41
