jQuery plugin Within Skuid / $j

How to Extend Jquery with Plugin while working with SKUID? I am messing with Twitter typeahead.js and the Functions are not showing up in the standard $ scope. Stumbled upon $j which is responding a lot nicer. Thoughts?

You are right — attaching additional jQuery plugins to the global variable $ is not going to make it available from within Skuid, because this is not referring to the version of jQuery that Skuid is using internally. Use $j and skuid.$ instead — both should point to the same jQuery version. We recommend using skuid.$, $j is only available for backward compatibility. These variables both point to the version of jQuery that Skuid is using internally.
