jQuery Turbolinks

Do you like Turbolinks? It's easy and fast way to improve user experience of surfing on your website.

But if you have a large codebase with lots of $(el).bind(...) Turbolinks will surprise you. Most part of your JavaScripts will stop working in usual way. It's because the nodes on which you bind events no longer exist.

I wrote jquery.turbolinks to solve this problem in my project. It's easy to use: just require it immediately after jquery.js. Your other scripts should be loaded after jquery.turbolinks.js, and turbolinks.js should be after your other scripts.

gem 'jquery-turbolinks'

JavaScript manifest file:

//= require jquery.turbolinks

And it just works!


By default ready function is bound to page:load event.

If you want to change it use $.setReadyEvent function:



By default right after trigger page:fetch $.isReady is set to false. And after page:load is set to true.

If you want to change default behaviour you can use $.setFetchEvent:
