7 – 8 drupal_add_library($module, $name, $every_page = NULL)

Adds multiple JavaScript or CSS files at the same time.

A library defines a set of JavaScript and/or CSS files, optionally using settings, and optionally requiring another library. For example, a library can be a jQuery plugin, a JavaScript framework, or a CSS framework. This function allows modules to load a library defined/shipped by itself or a depending module, without having to add all files of the library separately. Each library is only loaded once.


$module The name of the module that registered the library.

$name The name of the library to add.

$every_page Set to TRUE if this library is added to every page on the site. Only items with the every_page flag set to TRUE can participate in aggregation.

Return value

TRUE if the library was successfully added; FALSE if the library or one of its dependencies could not be added.
