How do I add minified JS files to the Rails Webpacker

Arjun Rajkumar asked in Rails

I am trying to add min.js files - and getting an error.

This works while adding a normal .js file:

- app/javascript/packs/calendar.js
alert('Calendar loaded')

-# app/views/calendars/index.html.erb
<%= javascript_pack_tag 'calendar' %>

The above code works. But when I try to add a min.js file it gives an error.
-# app/views/calendars/index.html.erb
<%= javascript_pack_tag 'calendar' %>
<%= javascript_pack_tag 'something.min' %>

Can anyone share what the process is for adding min.js files to view via Rails Webpacker?




ALso - I have added 'something.min' to the javascript/packs/something.min.js


I made a stupid mistake!

Can call minified JS files also with the same way.
So, instead of '<%= javascript_pack_tag 'something.min' %>' like I did before - I just have to use '<%= javascript_pack_tag 'something' %>' - and it runs.
