jQuery issues left right and center…

I have been messing around with rails for a bit and I keep getting to a point where jQuery bottlenecks everything.

I am trying to edit a form to use a simple DatePicker following [this tutorial](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndBKSjAbemo&t=6s)

However it keeps getting stuck on the very first line of this

jQuery ->
Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token >

I have read some StackOverflow posts saying just remove Turbolinks, other say to install this [jQuery gem](https://github.com/rails/jquery-rails)

But in the end nothing seems to work.

Here's my gemfile
source 'https://rubygems.org'

ruby '2.3.3'
git_source(:github) do |repo_name|
repo_name = "#{repo_name}/#{repo_name}" unless repo_name.include?("/")
