Meteor 1.4 npm jquery-validation. No validate() method

I am upgrading my project to meteor 1.4 (derived from an older meteorchef’s base codebase). When running my app I get:
Uncaught TypeError: $(…).validate is not a function

I did a:
npm install --save jquery-validation

In my react-component I import jquery and jquery-validation as:
import $ from ‘jquery’;
import ‘jquery-validation’;

The line that fails is:


If I do a console.log($(component.refs.signin)), I get a [form.signin]

It looks like the validate() method is not attached to $(component.refs.signin)
This worked in meteor 1.3. Any advice?

I solved it by rebuilding my project from scratch.

so… @ggerber what was the problem? Having the same issue

Don’t know. I have moved on to using uniforms-bootstrap4
