Topic: Uncaught ReferenceError: Waves is not defined

Marvin Jaworski free asked 5 years ago

Hey, I´m using require.js in my project. mdb.js is loaded with jquery as dependency on require, but my chrome developertool says "Uncaught ReferenceError: Waves is not defined" when my website loads. Code of my main.js:
    baseUrl : './js',
    shim : {
        bootstrap : {
            deps : [ 'jquery'],
            exports: 'Bootstrap'
        mdb : {
            deps : [ 'jquery'],
            exports: 'mdb'

    paths : {
        jquery : 'vendor/jquery.min',
        underscore : 'vendor/underscore',

        bootstrap : 'vendor/bootstrap.min',
        mdb : 'vendor/mdb.min',
        tether : 'vendor/tether.min',

        text : 'vendor/text',
        json : 'vendor/json',

        modules : '../modules',
        data : '../data'

requirejs([ 'bootstrap', 'text', 'json', 'mdb', 'tether',
            'modules/slideshow/module', 'modules/flipCard/module', 'modules/accordion/module', 'modules/footer/module'],
            function() {

Can someone explain me how I solve the problem or how I load mdb.js generally correctly with require.js? Thanks, Marvin

is there a solid solution? 

After commenting those lines then "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'defaults' of undefined" is fired from line mdb.js:23672

Hello, Comment the following code lines in mdb.js. It should be good now. Waves.attach('.btn, .btn-floating', ['waves-light']); Waves.attach('.waves-light', ['waves-light']); Waves.attach('.navbar-nav a:not(.navbar-brand), .nav-icons li a, .navbar form, .nav-tabs .nav-item', ['waves-light']); Waves.attach('.pager li a', ['waves-light']); Waves.attach('.pagination .page-item .page-link', ['waves-effect']); Waves.init();/* FORMS */ Regards

This is a temporary work-around, right? Suppose we go ahead and comment out those lines. Will buttons no longer be able to have waves? What happens when we want to upgrade the version of mdb? We have to remember our little hack, and hope it works with the new version? Is there a real fix coming for this, any way we can help make that happen? Thanks!
