This gem adds a single generator to Rails 3, jquery:install. Running the generator will remove any Prototype JS files you may happen to have, fetch jQuery and the jQuery-ujs driver for Rails, and (optionally) fetch jQuery UI.
In your Gemfile, add this line:
bundle install. To invoke the generator, run:
rails generate jquery:install #--ui to enable jQuery UI --version to install specific version of JQuery (default is 1.4.2)
You're done! Don't forget to output
csrf_meta_tag somewhere inside your
<head> tag in your layout!
If you're using edge Rails, everything should just work starting with version 0.2.2. If it's not working, try running
bundle update jquery-rails, or change your Gemfile to read
gem "jquery-rails", "~>0.2".
