Jquery-rails upgrade breaking existing code which depends on older versions of jQuery Core (1.8.2)

How do you manage different scripts that need different versions of
jQuery
to work properly?

I used to be able to use No Conflict even though it was kinda messy too.
But at least I could get all the scripts working without one breaking
the
other due to different jQuery Core dependencies.

You might want to use $.noConflict() as shown in this stackoverflow

So I tried noConflict but it didn’t work.

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.8.2.min.js"

type=“text/javascript”>

Then inside* jquery.inlineedit.js*:

(function($) {

// define inlineEdit method
$.fn.inlineEdit = function(options) {

}
})(jq183);

Not sure why it doesn’t work! Can’t do inline edit where it used to
work!

I see… what about jQuery UI and jQuery Ujs which depends on those
specific
jQuery Core? How would I adapt those versions with noConflict?

Thought I’d share how I got it all working in the Asset Pipeline.

//= require jquery
//= require jquery_ujs
//= require bootstrap
//= require bootstrap-modalmanager
//= require bootstrap-modal
//= require jquery.easing
//= require jquery.cookie
//= require zeroclipboard
//= require jquery-1.9.0.min
//= require noconflict.jquery-1.9.0
//= require toggles
//= require jquery-1.10.1.min
//= require noconflict.jquery-1.10.1
//= require jquery.joyride-2.1
//= require jquery-1.7.2.min
//= require jquery-ui-1.8.7.custom.min
//= require noconflict.jquery-1.7.2
//= require jquery.inlineedit
//= require pubsub
//= require base

Got this fixed.

Basically I put ‘$.fn.jquery’ inside each scripts after NoConflict block
to
check the version and made sure the 1.8.2 version came through to them.
