I'm trying to load a js file in adminhtml area.

I've created my module and requirejs-config.js file under app/code/vendorName/moduleName/view/adminhtml/web folder:

var config = {

        map: {
            "*": {
                stickerConfig: 'vendorName_moduleName/js/stickerConfig'

I see this piece of code in pub/static/_requirejs/adminhtml/Magento/backend/en_US/requirejs-config.js file.

Then I created my stickerConfig.js in app/code/Mainf/Stickers/view/adminhtml/web/js

When I load backend pages, I don't find my javascript in list of js downloaded by browser.

What's wrong?

    You need to call your custom script in your phtml template. – Khoa TruongDinh Jan 3 '17 at 16:54
  • @KhoaTruongDinh I've already used this method (load js by requirejs) in frontend area and it works fine. This should be the right way to improve page loading performance. I am not able to load js by requirejs in adminhtml area but I find documentation about it. Are you sure of what you're writing? – WaPoNe Jan 4 '17 at 7:54
  • Make sure your template is called in adminhtml area? – Khoa TruongDinh Jan 4 '17 at 8:11

    @KhoaTruongDinh: thanks to you advice I've found a solution: I load my js code in an adminhtml template called by adminhtml_system_config_edit.xml layout. – WaPoNe Jan 5 '17 at 14:04

I solved in this way..


<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" layout="admin-2columns-left" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceContainer name="footer">
            <block class="vendorName\moduleName\Block\Config" template="vendorName_moduleName::js.phtml"/>


<script type="text/javascript">
        function($) {
            $(function() {
                // My js code
