Include jQuery into Symfony2

I am new in Symfony2 framework and not fully understand how to work with javascripts and how to include theirs in the best way.

What I need: to include jQuery script to each page.

What I have: I have common layout like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
{% block javascripts %}{% endblock %}
{% block body %}{% endblock %}


Where jquery.js should be placed. What about web/bundles/jquery? Or there are some special official jquery bundles? Should I use asset() and how?


Assuming your jquery.min.js is placed under src/Acme/FooBundle/Resources/public/js/

You can use either

<script type="text/javascript" src="{{ asset('bundles/acmefoo/js/jquery.min.js') }}"></script>


{% javascripts
    <script type="text/javascript" src="{{ asset_url }}"></script>
{% endjavascripts %}

Into your twig template.

Make sure you installed the assets afterwards or run this command

php app/console assets:install web --symlink
