$ is not defined - Jquery not found

Posted 1 year ago by tha07

In my Laravel project (laravel 5.6) I installed Jquery from npm. Then I added it to webpack.mix.js.

mix.webpackConfig(webpack => {
    return { plugins: [new webpack.ProvidePlugin({
                $: "jquery",
                jQuery: ["jquery", "$"],
                "window.jQuery": "jquery",
                Popper: ["popper.js", "default"]
            })] };

after compiling the assets and trying to use jquery it shows

"Uncaught ReferenceError: $ is not defined"

I am using my custom JavaScript file after loading the mix file in my view.

<script src="{{ mix('/js/app.js') }}"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/tests/tests.js"></script>

In my custom JavaScript file I added the following code to check Jquery.

$("#myCheckButton").click(function(e) {

I tried changing the webpack.min.js webPackconfig settings but was not able to solve it. Most questions like this recommended to put the custom js files after the mix. I think I got it right in my case
