Magento 2 module to automatically generate critical css with critical


  • generate critical css with a simple command
  • Fallback critical css for "empty" pages
  • Add urls by creating a custom provider


Install the critical binary. Install instructions can be found on the critical website. Only versions >=2.0.3 are supported.

Add this extension to your Magento installation with Composer:

composer require m2-boilerplate/module-critical-css



The critical css feature needs to be enabled (available in 2.3.4+):

bin/magento config:set dev/css/use_css_critical_path 1

Features can be customised in Stores > Configuration > Developer > CSS.

Generate critical css

Run the following command

bin/magento m2bp:critical-css:generate

Afterwards you should find the the generated css in var/critical-css. The css will now be integrated automatically on your website.

Add additional URLs via a custom provider

The following example adds the magento contact page via a custom provider:


namespace Vendor\Module\Provider;

use Magento\Framework\App\Request\Http;
use Magento\Framework\App\RequestInterface;
use Magento\Framework\UrlInterface;
use Magento\Framework\View\LayoutInterface;
use Magento\Store\Api\Data\StoreInterface;
use M2Boilerplate\CriticalCss\Provider\ProviderInterface;
class CustomProvider implements ProviderInterface
    const NAME = 'custom_example';

     * @var UrlInterface
    protected $url;

    public function __construct(UrlInterface $url)
        $this->url = $url;

    public function getUrls(StoreInterface $store): array
        return [
            'contact_index_index' => $this->url->getUrl('contact'),

    public function getName(): string
        return self::NAME;

    public function isAvailable(): bool
        return true;

    public function getPriority(): int
        return 1200;

    public function getCssIdentifierForRequest(RequestInterface $request, LayoutInterface $layout): ?string
        if ($request->getModuleName() !== 'contact' || !$request instanceof Http) {
            return null;
        if ($request->getFullActionName('_') === 'contact_index_index') {
            return 'contact_index_index';

        return null;

Add the new provider via DI:

in your module´s etc/di.xml add the following:

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <type name="M2Boilerplate\CriticalCss\Provider\Container">
            <argument name="providers" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="custom_example" xsi:type="object">Vendor\Module\Provider\CustomProvider</item>
