How can I override this file on my theme?


I'm a newbie to M2


In your custom module [Namespace]/[Module]/view/frontend/requirejs-config.js add this

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

your overridden js file should be here [Namespace]_[Module]/view/frontend/web/js/view/messages.js

run below command:

php bin/magento setup:upgrade && php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f

  • I don't see the view folder on the theme but I saw theme-name/require-config.js. Is it the same file? – thedeadlyone Oct 29 '18 at 10:54
  • you need to create require-config.js file get reference here – Hitesh Oct 29 '18 at 10:56
  • I have this on theme-folder/require-config.js var config = { "map": { "*": { "flexslider":'Magento_Theme/js/jquery.flexslider.min', "amShopbyFilterSlider": "js/amShopby" } } }; Do I still need to create folders and file (theme-name/view/frontend/require-config.js) – thedeadlyone Oct 29 '18 at 11:01
  • try to append this 'Magento_Ui/Magento_Ui/js/view/messages.js':'[Namespace]_[Module]/js/view/messages.js' and check it work or not. – Hitesh Oct 29 '18 at 11:10
  • I accepted your answer because it's correct when you are on a module. But for your theme I think it's different? Isn't it just the folder? – thedeadlyone Oct 29 '18 at 12:49
