To add JavaScript to a HubSpot form, embed the code within the form's embed code using an onFormSubmit function. For modules, include JavaScript in the module.js file of a custom module or use the 'Write fields using JavaScript' feature. To globally add a JavaScript file, upload it via Marketing > Files and Templates > Design Tools and link it to your domain or specific pages. JavaScript frameworks like Vue.js or React can also be integrated into HubSpot modules or templates.

This guide simplifies the process of enhancing your HubSpot modules with custom JavaScript, making your web applications more dynamic and interactive.

Streamline your HubSpot tasks and ensure seamless integration with other platforms by automating with Bardeen.

Add JavaScript to HubSpot Form

To embed JavaScript in a HubSpot form, use the form embed code instead of the form module. Include an onFormSubmit function within the embed code where you can run your custom JavaScript code. This approach allows you to execute JavaScript actions upon form submission. Here's an example of how to structure this:

hbspt.forms.create({portalId: '',formId: '',onFormSubmit: function($form) {// YOUR SCRIPT HERE}});

Ensure to replace 'portalId' and 'formId' with your specific HubSpot portal ID and form ID. This method is particularly useful for capturing cookie values or manipulating form data before submission.

HubSpot Module JavaScript

For adding JavaScript directly to a HubSpot module, you have several options. The most straightforward method is to include your JavaScript code within the module.js file of a custom module. This file is part of the module's structure and allows you to define JavaScript that will execute whenever the module is loaded on a page. Remember, email modules do not support JavaScript due to the limitations of email clients.

Another approach is to use the 'Write fields using JavaScript' feature available in HubSpot's module system. This allows you to dynamically set the values of module fields using JavaScript, providing a way to adjust module content programmatically.

Adding a JavaScript File to HubSpot

To add a JavaScript file to HubSpot, navigate to Marketing > Files and Templates > Design Tools in your HubSpot account. Create a new JavaScript file through the 'New file' option and select 'JavaScript' as the type. After creating and editing your JavaScript file, you can link it to a template or domain. To include the JavaScript file on all pages of a HubSpot-hosted domain or on individual pages, access the file's public URL and insert it into the HTML of the pages or templates where you want the script to run. You can also add the JavaScript file to your site's footer HTML for global inclusion across all pages.

Using JavaScript Frameworks on HubSpot

JavaScript frameworks like Vue.js or React can be integrated into HubSpot modules or templates. For Vue.js, you can add the framework to your module by using the require_js function to load the Vue library. This ensures the library loads only once per page. You can then add Vue.js HTML and JavaScript code within your module files, using HubL's raw tag to prevent code conflicts.

For React, you can utilize HubSpot's support for building modules and partials with React. This involves server-side rendering of React components into the HTML generated by HubL, supporting both server-side and client-side interactivity. HubSpot provides a React boilerplate to help you get started with integrating React into your modules efficiently.

When using JavaScript frameworks or libraries, it's important to consider server-side and client-side rendering techniques. HubSpot's module system allows for server-side rendering, but you can also use JavaScript for client-side rendering or hydration of content. This flexibility enables you to build dynamic, interactive web applications within the HubSpot CMS.
