Unload Joomla Scripts - mootools, jquery, bootstrap etc from loading

Joomla loads a bunch of scripts by default - many of these are necessary for something or other, but sometimes (if you know what you are doing) you may want to remove them or stop them from loading.

To do this, there is a specific function which you can use. Add the following to the index.php of your template.

 

Add or remove files from the dontInclude - the ones you add here will be unloaded. Anything which you do not include will not be unloaded.

$doc = JFactory::getDocument();

$dontInclude = array(
'/media/jui/js/jquery.js',
'/media/jui/js/jquery.min.js',
'/media/jui/js/jquery-noconflict.js',
'/media/jui/js/jquery-migrate.js',
'/media/jui/js/jquery-migrate.min.js',
'/media/jui/js/bootstrap.js',
'/media/system/js/core-uncompressed.js',
'/media/system/js/tabs-state.js',
'/media/system/js/core.js',
'/media/system/js/mootools-core.js',
'/media/system/js/mootools-core-uncompressed.js',
);

foreach($doc->_scripts as $key => $script){
    if(in_array($key, $dontInclude)){
        unset($doc->_scripts[$key]);
    }
}
