JavaScript Bundle Doesn’t Work on ASP.Net MVC 5

12 Jun

Developers often make this very common mistake. You start an ASP.Net MVC app, add few JavaScript files and libraries, run. Everything works fine but the JavaScript.

ASP.Net MVC Bundling

public static void RegisterBundles(BundleCollection bundles)
{
    bundles.Add(new ScriptBundle("~/bundles/jquery").Include(
                "~/Scripts/jquery-1.*"));

    bundles.Add(new ScriptBundle("~/bundles/startstop").Include(
                "~/Scripts/startstop*"));
}

ASP.Net MVC bundle has default ignore list and one of ignore list is ‘*.min.js’ files. Yes, any minified JavaScript file.

You can add the following code RegisterBundles to clear the ignore list before adding anything to the bundle.

bundles.IgnoreList.Clear();

Once you clear the list, you are also able to build your own ignore list.

bundles.IgnoreList.Ignore("");
