!This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.


Uses HeadJS to load your enqueued scripts asynchronously, in parallel, executing them in order.

This plugin uses the wp_print_scripts action hook, as opposed to output buffering and regex used by alternative implementations.

The downside of this method is that only scripts loaded via wp_enqueue_script will be affected by the plugin, the upside is better performance by avoiding output buffering on every page load.

The plugin will preserve any localizations added via wp_localize_script, and uses the first parameter passed to wp_enqueue_script as the label for the script in the head.js call. For example,

wp_enqueue_script('jquery', 'https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.min.js');

would show up as

head.js({"jquery": "https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.min.js"});

This allows you to run callbacks when specific scripts are ready, such as

head.ready('jquery', function() {
    //do something when jquery is loaded
