jQuery! For Rails! So great.
This gem provides:
- jQuery 1, 2 and 3
- the jQuery UJS adapter
- assert_select_jquery to test jQuery responses in Ruby tests
Starting with v2.1, the jquery-rails gem follows these version guidelines to provide more control over your app's jQuery version from your Gemfile:
patch version bump = updates to jquery-ujs, jquery-rails, and patch-level updates to jQuery minor version bump = minor-level updates to jQuery major version bump = major-level updates to jQuery and updates to Rails which may be backwards-incompatible
See VERSIONS.md to see which versions of jquery-rails bundle which versions of jQuery.
The jquery and jquery-ujs files will be added to the asset pipeline and available for you to use. If they're not already in
//= require jquery //= require jquery_ujs
If you are running Rails 5.1 and up, and if you have included
//= require rails-ujs, then
jquery_ujs is not needed anymore. You can just add:
//= require jquery
If you want to use jQuery 2, you can require
//= require jquery2 //= require jquery_ujs
And if you want to use jQuery 3, you can require
//= require jquery3 //= require jquery_ujs
For jQuery UI, we recommend the jquery-ui-rails gem, as it includes the jquery-ui css and allows easier customization.
As of v3.0, jquery-rails no longer includes jQuery UI. Use the jquery-ui-rails gem above.
