following the aurelia-cli-integration document at https://haurelia-cli-integrationelp.syncfusion.com/aurelia/getting-started/.

I get a ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined. When importing eg resource and  registering the bridge:

error here ... import 'syncfusion-javascript/Scripts/ej/web/ej.web.all.min'; in main.ts

error here ... aurelia.use.plugin(PLATFORM.moduleName('aurelia-syncfusion-bridge'), (syncfusion) => syncfusion.useAll());

MY Aurelia app is configured as:
Platform: Web
    Bundler: Webpack
    Loader: None
    Transpiler: TypeScript
    Markup Processor: Minimal Minification
    CSS Processor: Sass
    Unit Test Runner: Karma
    Integration Test Runner: Protractor
    Editor: Visual Studio Code
     AU CLI version is 0.0.1

Here is my aurelia.json snippet
"bundles": {
    "dependencies": [
        "name": "aurelia-templating-resources",
        "path": "../node_modules/aurelia-templating-resources/dist/amd",

Hi Luai Kamal, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support. 
We have analyzed reported issue and the root cause of the issue is jQuery is not bundled in the application. In the Aurelia CLI application, we need to the add the jQuery plugin in webpack.config.js file. Refer to the below code snippet to resolve the issue. 
plugins: [ 
    ...when(!karma, new DuplicatePackageCheckerPlugin()), 
    new AureliaPlugin(), 
    new ProvidePlugin({ 
      'Promise': 'bluebird', 
      '$': 'jquery', 
      'jQuery': 'jquery', 
      'window.jQuery': 'jquery' 
    new ModuleDependenciesPlugin({ 
      'aurelia-testing': ['./compile-spy', './view-spy'] 
    new HtmlWebpackPlugin({ 
      template: 'index.ejs', 
      minify: production ? { 
        removeComments: true, 
        collapseWhitespace: true 
      } : undefined, 
      metadata: { 
        // available in index.ejs // 
        title, server, baseUrl 
And, to register the aurelia-syncfusion-bridge in main.ts file , refer the below structure. 
    .plugin(PLATFORM.moduleName('aurelia-syncfusion-bridge'), (syncfusion) => syncfusion.useAll()); 
We will update this bridge registration information in our online documentation soon. 
We have noticed that you are using the Aurelia CLI version as 0.0.1. But unfortunately, there is no target version in Aurelia. For your convenience we have prepared a simple sample with latest Aurelia Cli with Typescript compiler and attached the sample below. 
Please try out our sample and if you are still facing any issues, please revert us back and share your sample with issue.

Adding jQuery in webpack.config.js works.
