Rails 4: how to use $(document).ready() with turbo-links

Here’s what I do…

ready = ->

  ...your coffeescript goes here...

$(document).on('page:load', ready)

last line listens for page load which is what turbo links will trigger.

Edit…adding Javascript version (per request):

var ready;
ready = function() {

  ...your javascript goes here...


$(document).on('page:load', ready);

Edit 2…For Rails 5 (Turbolinks 5) page:load becomes turbolinks:load and will be even fired on initial load. So we can just do the following:

$(document).on('turbolinks:load', function() {

  ...your javascript goes here...
