Nodebb Widget and Define()



  • Hey,

    Is there a way to reach define scoped javascript when using a widget? I am just trying to wrap the javascript code into a js file for my widget instead of having it in the template in script tags.

    I am trying to do something like below and i'm realatively new to JS and I have gotten this working perfectly when I am going to a route that I've added just can't get it to work when I am rendering widgets...

    define('forum/widgets/recruitment', [''], function () {
    'use strict';

    var recruitment = {};
    recruitment.init = function(){
    console.log('WOOT');
    };

    return recruitment;
    });

    Hello!

    I think What you are looking for is require() Assuming you have placed your define in the Custom Header section, you would enter this into an HTML widget to call it.

    <script>
    require(['forum/widgets/recruitment'], function (module) {
      module.init();
    });
    </script>
    


  • Thank you!

    I am a super noob to require JS and I had a feeling it was something related to calling a require but just am still trying to get used to the frameworks in play :P
