By default, the list view web part comes with a column containing a checkbox for each list row.

With the UI, it's possible to disable it by going into view's options and disabling the Allow individual item checkboxes option in the Tabular View section.

Is it possible to apply this setting programatically?

This setting is reflected as TabularView in the view XML definition. However, setting it on the view via CSOM seems not to be supported.

I managed to achieve the desired result with Client Side Rendering. I've injected the below JavaScript code with JSLink:

(function () {
    var overrideCtx = {};
    overrideCtx.Templates = {};

    overrideCtx.ListTemplateType = 100;
    overrideCtx.OnPreRender  = postRenderHandler;


function postRenderHandler(ctx) {
   ctx.ListSchema.TabularView = false;
