I have some custom jquery functions and I want to create a common js files for all custom functions. But I am unable to find a way to achieve this.

I have created requirejs-config.js file at theme root(app/desgin/frontend/Vendor/Theme/). Content of requirejs-config.js file is:

var config = {
map: {
   '*': {
       'customfunctions' : 'js/customfunctions',
paths: {

Then I have created a customfunctions.js file which has custom functions. Path of file is app/desgin/frontend/Vendor/Theme/web/js. Content of customfunctions.js file is:

   function($) {
      function showDivtest() {
         alert("I am here");

Now, how I can call showDivtest() function in phtml file? Please suggest.

  • Do you want this by module?

  • @SohelRana What will be best option? I want to create separate files for custom jquery functions. So please suggest how I can register this file in all pages and call its function from any where. Or on some specific pages also.

Your custom script should change:

 function($) {
    'use strict';
    return  {
        showDivtest: function () {
          alert("I am here");


Call via require Js in the template. For example, in your template:

    ], function (script) {
  • I tried this but it not working. Its throwing the error in console: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'showDivtest' of undefined

  • Yes its working. Can be call this function in html onclick event? like <a href="javascript:void(0)" onclick="script.showDivtest();">

  • You should create a jQuery Widget. Or, in your custom function customfunctions.js, you should return a function which includes the code for click event. Apr 2 '17 at 7:49
