Documentación para 4Geeks Payments está arriba

And replaces it with
//= require rails-ujs
Of course, if we consider that jQuery is sufficient for our needs of Javascript the only thing we have to do is add it to the Gemfile and proceed as if nothing had happened or use the new rails package manager:

Install yarn on Mac:brew install yarn
Add jQuery to Rails project, run the command from…
