How to import javascript from Gems with webpacker

Alex Deering asked in Ruby

Ive come across an issue where some gems I want to use (specifically social-share-button) need to have a javascript file imported but with webpacker in rails 6, not quite sure how to do that now

Reply

Just import it in app/javascripts/packs/application.js

import "../myfile"

And put your code in app/javascripts/myfile.js

Yep, you can do that. Or if they have a node package, you can use that instead.
