To use jQuery in Magento you need to add require before using jQuery, like this:

    ], function($){
        $( "<div class='one'>Test</div>" ).insertAfter( ".inner" );

Here is the detail of how insertAfter works is here: https://api.jquery.com/insertafter/


If you want to do it in js level, then you don't need require you can use this criteria to add your js.

Add your js file in app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/web/js/your_js_file.js

then add requirejs-config.js in app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/requirejs-config.js

content of requirejs-config.js will be:

var config = {
paths: {
    'myfile': 'Vendor_Module/js/your_js_file'
 shim: {
    'myfile': {
        deps: ['jquery']

Now you can use any jQuery functions in your file without using require

  • can i do this by creating a folder js to declare it into the file .js ?
