Laravel Mix Uncaught ReferenceError: $ is not defined

I’ve searched and searched and I can’t find the answer to my problem on SO. So here’s my issue. I’m trying to load jQuery Globally using Laravel Mix. I’ve tried modifying all sorts of files, and nothing seems to be working… I’m still getting the “$ is not defined” error.

Here’s my code.


window._ = require('lodash');
window.Popper = require('popper.js').default;

try {
    window.$ = window.jQuery = require('jquery');

} catch (e) {}

window.axios = require('axios');

window.axios.defaults.headers.common['X-Requested-With'] = 'XMLHttpRequest';

let token = document.head.querySelector('meta[name="csrf-token"]');

if (token) {
    window.axios.defaults.headers.common['X-CSRF-TOKEN'] = token.content;
} else {
    console.error('CSRF token not found:');


mix.js('resources/assets/js/app.js', 'public/js')
   .js('resources/assets/js/select2.min.js', 'public/js')
   .sass('resources/assets/sass/app.scss', 'public/css')
   .sass('resources/assets/sass/admin/app.scss', 'public/css/admin')
   .copy('resources/assets/css/fontawesome.css', 'public/css')
   .copy('resources/assets/css/select2.min.css', 'public/css')
   .copy('resources/assets/webfonts', 'public/webfonts')
   .copy('resources/assets/js/tinymce', 'public/js/tinymce');


Error I’m getting:

Uncaught ReferenceError: $ is not defined

Code on inside of create.blade.php in the @section(‘scripts’)

{{-- Tiny MCE --}}
<script src="/js/tinymce/tinymce.min.js"></script>
        plugins: 'link',
        menubar: false,
        branding: false,
        resize: false,
        statusbar: false,
        force_br_newlines : false,
        force_p_newlines : false,
        forced_root_block : '',

                    'bold italic underline | link | outdent indent | alignleft aligncenter alignright alignjustify alignnone',],

{{-- Image Javascript --}}
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(function() {

        // We can attach the `fileselect` event to all file inputs on the page
        $(document).on('change', ':file', function() {
            var input = $(this),
            numFiles = input.get(0).files ? input.get(0).files.length : 1,
            label = input.val().replace(/\\/g, '/').replace(/.*\//, '');
            input.trigger('fileselect', [numFiles, label]);

        // We can watch for our custom `fileselect` event like this
        $(document).ready( function() {
            $(':file').on('fileselect', function(event, numFiles, label) {

            var input = $(this).parents('.input-group').find(':text'),
            log = numFiles > 1 ? numFiles + ' files selected' : label;

            if( input.length ) {
            } else {
                if( log ) alert(log);



AND finally my layout file

<!-- Scripts -->
        <script src="{{ asset('js/app.js') }}" defer></script>

        {{-- Page Specific Scripts --}}


What am I doing wrong?!?!?

Console.log(e) returns nothing… which means jquery should be loading correctly but isn’t.

this is the app.js file

Still giving same error

  1. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.

  2. Heya! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website like yours require
    a lot of work? I am completely new to writing a blog but I do write
    in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog
    so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new
    aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  3. I’m not sure exactly why but this blog is loading very slow for
    me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  4. Amazing blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Many thanks!

  11. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
    as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre
    talking about, why waste your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?
