Posted in ActiveAdmin & Autocomplete

Has anyone had, and hopefully fixed, the jquery(?) conflict between activeadmin and autocomplete ( I was using easyAutocomplete ).

Soon as I have both in a project it breaks with not a function issues. Really frustrating because ActiveAdmin was ideal for my needs but this seems to be a common issue. Why are they conflicting?

Posted in Using ActiveAdmin to Build an Admin UI Discussion

I know this is really old but was wondering if anyone had resolved the issues of ActiveAdmin interfering with jquery etc.

I have created an app that works nicely with AA and came here and found the nice tutorial on how to add autocomplete to my app. Trouble is I get the easyComplete(options) is not a function problem.

I tried using the sample autcomplete app. As soon as I add activeadmin to it it breaks too.

Been a big time waster. Hate JS/Jquery for how brittle it is. All help welcome.
