Hi,

I have been loading kendo.web.min.js along with a culture file using the RequireJS shim method along with the deps option set as follows:
require.config({
    paths: {
        "jquery": ["jquery-1.10.2.min"],
        "kendo": ["kendo/kendo.web.min"],
        "kendo-cultures-en-gb": ["kendo/cultures/kendo.culture.en-GB.min"],
        "bootstrap": ["bootstrap.min"]
    },
    shim: {
        'bootstrap': {
            deps: ['jquery']
        },
        "kendo": {
            deps: ["jquery"]
        },
        "kendo-cultures-en-gb": {
            deps: ["kendo"]
        }
    }
});
I then noticed in the offical documentation that it is recommended to avoid using the Kendo UI bundles with RequireJS: http://docs.kendoui.com/getting-started/using-kendo-with/using-kendo-with-requirejs.

As I haven't had any particular issues with this approach (yet!) I wondered, if this was still the official recommendation and that I should revert to script tags for Kendo, or whether I can continue using the above method?

Regards,

Dan.

Hello Dan,

Using RequireJS with Kendo UI bundles such as kendo.web.min.js is not recommended because it is meaningful to use RequireJS loading for individual widget scripts, from performance/modular perspective. Still if everything works without issues with your configuration, feel free to continue using your approach.
