How do I know/check whether I have jQuery installed in my rails project? I am writing some jQuery code and would like to ensure I have the prerequisites installed correctly.
I realize there is a gem to do this but I was wondering if someone can point out a way to install jQuery with the gem and also without the gem.
In the latest versions of rails, jquery is automagically available in your apps without any further intervention by you, you can verify this by putting something like this in a view:
If you see TEST when you load that view page, jquery is functioning.
