7 hook_library_alter(&$libraries, $module)

Alters the JavaScript/CSS library registry.

Allows certain, contributed modules to update libraries to newer versions while ensuring backwards compatibility. In general, such manipulations should only be done by designated modules, since most modules that integrate with a certain library also depend on the API of a certain library version.

Parameters

$libraries The JavaScript/CSS libraries provided by $module. Keyed by internal library name and passed by reference.

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