To solve a problem in an FOSS extension I need to introduce a configuration settings with the scope "theme".

Is there a standard way do to such?

I was thinking about extended in the theme.xml but this is locked down by the style sheet.

Another option I see to add an array config in the backened, where I can specific theme and config.

But I am wondering if there is a standard way to do such.

I see two options:

  • use the etc/view.xml <vars> tag inside the theme
  • create a new configuration file type etc/disable_requirejs.xml inside the theme

Other option

Use excluded files for this - and exclude them from require JS config

What does the "exclude" Tag in Magento 2's view.xml file do
