POC to defer inline JS that requires jQuery
<?php
add_action('plugins_loaded','ao_defer_inline_init');
function ao_defer_inline_init() {
if ( get_option('autoptimize_js_include_inline') != 'on' ) {
add_filter('autoptimize_html_after_minify','ao_defer_inline_jquery',10,1);
}
}
function ao_defer_inline_jquery( $in ) {
if ( preg_match_all( '#<script.*>(.*)</script>#Usmi', $in, $matches, PREG_SET_ORDER ) ) {
foreach( $matches as $match ) {
if ( $match[1] !== '' && ( strpos( $match[1], 'jQuery' ) !== false || strpos( $match[1], '$' ) !== false ) ) {
// inline js that requires jquery, wrap deferring JS around it to defer it.
$new_match = 'var aoDeferInlineJQuery=function(){'.$match[1].'}; if (document.readyState === "loading") {document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", aoDeferInlineJQuery);} else {aoDeferInlineJQuery();}';
$in = str_replace( $match[1], $new_match, $in );
} else if ( $match[1] === '' && strpos( $match[0], 'src=' ) !== false && strpos( $match[0], 'defer' ) === false ) {
// linked non-aggregated JS, defer it.
$new_match = str_replace( '<script ', '<script defer ', $match[0] );
$in = str_replace( $match[0], $new_match, $in );
}
}
}
return $in;
}

Works great. for me. I had to add recaptcha to make it work.

Is there a way to hook add_filter to something that's WordPress native and does not depend on the Autoptimize plugin?

I don't think WordPress native has a filter for the full HTML @figgaro, but if you're using a page caching plugin then that probably has a filter that allows the same.

you have to include complete snippet or post more detail before we can help, it may look like you missed a syntax in php

put this code at the very end of function.php to avoid accidental syntax errors.

So should i put this code at the end of my functions.php? will this solve the render blocking alert related to jquery on pagespeeds ?

I added this code to my functions.php, but nothing is happening. I have Autoptimize and Async JavaScript plugins. Both have jQuery excluded for correct functioning of the site. What could be the culprit here?
Thanks

Somehow it works when you use Code Snippets Pro plugin but not when you paste the code in the functions.php file.
