    don't you mean define instead of require? also is this the javascript code that is in you JS-file or is this somewhere else? – Philipp Sander Mar 20 '19 at 14:39
  • use also define but same error TypeError: define is not a defined – HaFiz Umer Mar 20 '19 at 16:21
  • "define is not a defined" is not a message javascript would EVER print. please make sure that you provide us the correct error – Philipp Sander Mar 20 '19 at 16:28
  • It seems like you are overwriting the default.xml in module backend and therefore require.js is not loaded anymore – HelgeB Mar 20 '19 at 18:02

Here is how to add js in module, the best way is to add it via require-js

  1. app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/requirejs-config.js
var config = {
    map: {
        '*': {
            prince: 'Vendor_module/js/prince',
  1. app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/web/js/prince.js
define(['jquery'], function($){
   "use strict";
       alert("Yesss, it works !");
  1. app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/templates/file.phtml
<script type="text/javascript">
    require(['jquery', 'prince'], function($, prince) {

Don't forget to :

  • clean the cache

  • clean var/view_preprocessed content

  • clean pub/static content

  • deploy the static content : php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f
