I have a custom module called Quicklink it has its own JS files and external JS files too, I've added an external JS from a third-party CDN, but when I enable the JS minification in a Magento 2 clean installation, it turns all files into minified, not just my JS files, which causes issues with the external script.

// File path: Rafaelcg/Quicklink/view/frontend/requirejs-config.js
var config = {
    map: {
        '*': {
            quicklink: 'https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/quicklink/2.0.0/quicklink.umd.js',
            polyfillio: 'https://polyfill.io/v3/polyfill.min.js?features=IntersectionObserver'

How could I avoid the minification only in the external JS files?

You can add this exclude rule below in your config.xml file.

File path: Rafaelcg/Quicklink/etc/config.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Store:etc/config.xsd">
