TypeError: $(...).chosen is not a function

Vikram Sharma asked in General

I am using Rails 6. I have installed jQuery, Bootstrap, & Popper as explained in one of the videos and Bootstrap is working fine. Now I have to use Chosen jQuery plugin.

I installed it using Yarn

yarn add ssh://

which outputted

yarn add v1.15.2

In environment.js I added
  new webpack.ProvidePlugin ({
    $: 'jquery',
    jQuery: 'jquery',
    Popper: ['popper.js', 'default'],
    Chosen: ['chosen.js', 'default']

In my application.js I have

document.addEventListener("turbolinks:load", () => {

Which gives me the error (in web console)

TypeError: $(...).chosen is not a function[Learn More]

If I add the following to application.js

import chosen from "chosen"

I get

Error: Cannot find module 'chosen'

Any help will be life saving :)
