Deprecation: #97057 - Deprecate RequireJS support

See forge#97057


The RequireJS project has been discontinued and was therefore replaced by native ECMAScript v6/v11 modules in TYPO3 in forge#96510.

The infrastructure for configuration and loading of RequireJS modules is now deprecated and will be removed in TYPO3 v13.


Registering modules via 'requireJsModules' will still work. These modules will be loaded after modules registered via 'javaScriptModules'. Extensions that use 'requireJsModules will work as before but trigger a PHP E_USER_DEPRECATED error.

Affected installations

Installations that register custom JavaScript modules for the TYPO3 backend.


Migrate your JavaScript from the AMD module format to native ES6 modules and register your configuration in Configuration/JavaScriptModules.php, also see forge#96510 for more information:

# Configuration/JavaScriptModules.php

return [
    'dependencies' => ['core', 'backend'],
    'imports' => [
        '@vendor/my-extension/' => 'EXT:my_extension/Resources/Public/JavaScript/',

Then use TYPO3\CMS\Core\Page\PageRenderer::loadJavaScriptModules() instead of TYPO3\CMS\Core\Page\PageRenderer::loadRequireJsModule() to load the ES6 module:

// via PageRenderer

In Fluid templates includeJavaScriptModules is to be used instead of includeRequireJsModules:

In Fluid template the includeJavaScriptModules property of the <f:be.pageRenderer> ViewHelper may be used:

      0: '@vendor/my-extension/example.js'
