I'm building a theme based on the Blank theme, using the Magento UI library.

I notice that Magento comes with a color picker, which loads both spectrum.js (> 80 kB) and tinycolor.js (almost 40 kB). To be fair, these sizes are before minimizing the code, nevertheless this is still a massive amount of JavaScript, especially since my site doesn't have any use for a color picker in the first place.

Is there any way to remove / disable the color picker, such that I can avoid loading this unnecessary code?

  • do you want to remove those JS from front-end ?

  • @Pawan Yes, exactly. Why load JS that is not needed?

You can override bootstrap to remove color-picker.

Create a folder in theme with name Magento_Ui and override bootstrap.js file and remove below code

colorPicker: require('./color-picker')


did you ever find how to disable these useless scripts?? who the hell decided its good idea to force people to use all ui modules from jquery, I mean this is 50iq play

  • No, unfortunately I haven't.

This totally resurecting an old thread but just had to do the exact same thing and found that you can accomplish this by overriding:


And then removing the librarys not required from there
