Rails autosize plugin gem not working

I’m having some issues getting Jack Moore’s autosize plugin working in
Rails 4.

When I place the following script in application.html.erb, it doesn’t
work. But when I place it directly in the same view as the text area, it
works fine. I thought all files could see the javascript if it was
placed
in application.html.erb?

<script type="text/javascript" src=

http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/autosize.js/1.18.4/jquery.autosize.min.js

Also, I can’t get the gem working. In my gemfile I have gem 'autosize', '~> 1.1.18.4', I’ve done bundle install, bundle update, gem install autosize, restarted the server, but it doesn’t work.

Is gem ‘autosize’, ‘~> 1.1.18.4’ a typo? I ask because at
http://plugins.jquery.com/autosize/ that version is not listed.

Is there a reason you’re not following the directions?

I did that with a fresh Rails 4.2 app and it worked as advertised.

How are you invoking it on your textarea and what exactly do you
mean by “doesn’t work”? Are there JS errors in the console?
