As part of API implementation of Queue-it framework, I need to add extra custom attribute data-queueit-c into script tag, e.g.


I'm aware you can add other attributes such as defer, however this one is custom.

I've tried the following code using drupal_add_js, but without luck:

    'type' => 'external',
    'data-queueit-c' => 'MyClientID',

How this can be achieved?

It's old but I have the same problem (adding "crossorigin" attribute) and this is my answer :

  • There is an issue about it here : https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/issues/1664602

  • @kenorb solution can't work because "drupal_add_js" add "script" tag automatically. But... you can try this workaround (a little dirty) : close the script tag and open yours without closing


drupal_add_js('//--><!]]></script><script src="//static.queue-it.net/script/queueconfigloader.min.js" data-queueit-c="MyClientID"><!--//--><![CDATA[//><!--', 'inline');

As for workaround, inline syntax can be used, e.g.

$js_code = "<script data-queueit-c='MyClientID' type='text/javascript' src='//static.queue-it.net/script/queueconfigloader.min.js'></script>";
drupal_add_js($js_code, 'inline');

    The alternative looks like a real pain. drupal_get_js is very selective about what attributes it will use, so you'd need to re-implement that whole function and at the same time convince the system to use your new version instead. Not worth the hassle IMO

  • This does not seem to work, here is what i get : <script type="text/javascript"> <!--//--><![CDATA[//><!-- <script data-queueit-c='MyClientID' type='text/javascript' src='//static.queue-it.net/script/queueconfigloader.min.js'></script> //--><!]]> </script>

  • @Thony This solution is for Drupal 7, maybe you're using 8.
