I'm trying to call a Magento Javascript Component in my phtml page to get the customer data saved in session.

I'm having an issue in that the customerdata constructor gets loaded after my script and I can't figure out how to get my script to run after.

This is the customer-data.js file that needs to get loaded before my script

'Magento_Customer/js/customer-data': function (settings) {
            options = settings;

Here is how I'm trying to call it

], function (jQuery,customerData) {
    jQuery(document).ready(function() {

        var data = customerData.get('mysession-data');


My code works when the customerdata gets initialized but it's not always getting initialized first.

Is there anyway to configure this to get the customerdata to initialize and then I can call my session data?

  • have you find a way to resolve this case?

You can try to use RequireJs mixins in order to hook the core function.

var config = {
        'mixins': {
            'Magento_Customer/js/customer-data': {

Alan Storm described it here : http://alanstorm.com/the-curious-case-of-magento-2-mixins/

You can try to use shim option with requirejs as explain here :

Requirejs shim option not working

  • thanks. I don't really want to alter an existing function. I just want to get the content of customerData after it's initialized. I think the script that runs the "text/x-magento-init" must happen after my code

  • Do you try shim option ? The jQuery ready is not require I think. Jan 4, 2017 at 7:06

Add this in

// Vendor/Module/etc/module.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    <module name="Vendor_Module" setup_version="1.0.0" >
            <module name="Magento_Customer"/>

This basically tells magento to load Magento_Customer module first before running your module, so by then customer-data will be available.
