Solution :

I have lots of industry experience in writing complex Rails code.

I have gone through your post and understood your problem.

So to begin with you must follow below approach to resolve your issue:.

The only thing that solved it for me and is still rendering the JavaScript and stylesheets is to first change your application to application.css for the style sheets even if you are using Sass/SCSS, as it still compiles down into css and your application.js for the JavaScript link. Once that is done, go to your /assets/javascripts/application.js file and delete the // in front of //= require turbolinks.

And now your application should be working just fine.

This is most probably the deeper issue with turbolinks, but this is the quick workaround that has not let me down yet.


For windows if coffee-script source >= 1.9.0 not work properly then just add following code in Gemfile:

gem 'coffee-script-source', '1.8.0'

and run

bundle update coffee-script-source

 And your issue will be resolved.

In your /app/views/layouts/application.html.erb lines 5 and 6, alter the first parameter from application to default.

I met the similar issue, too for my condition, I don't know why, however it only occurs on Windows. The parameter application performs on the web server.

In case you are running in WIndows, the coffee-script-source 1.9.0 does not employ on windows.

Alter it to a previous version including this line to your Gemfile:

gem 'coffee-script-source', '1.8.0'

And then reinstall the bundle synthesizing the dependencies for the new Gem version with:

bundle update coffee-script-source

 1 - replacing application by default

Replacing the "application" by "default" in blog\app\views\layouts\application.html.erb

<%= stylesheet_link_tag    'application', media: 'all', 'data-turbolinks-track': 'reload' %>
<%= javascript_include_tag 'application', 'data-turbolinks-track': 'reload' %>


<%= stylesheet_link_tag    'default', media: 'all', 'data-turbolinks-track': 'reload' %>
<%= javascript_include_tag 'default', 'data-turbolinks-track': 'reload' %>

It must currently be performing fine. Although I've read that there might be an issue at the time running javascript while employing "default" instead of application.

2 - altering coffee script's version in the Gemfile

Add in blog/GemFile the coffee-script-source v1.8.0 (v1.9.0 does not work on Windows)

#For Windows it works with CofferScript v1.8
gem 'coffee-script-source', '1.8.0'

Stop the server (in case it was running) and do:

bundle update coffee-script-source

You forgot '>' at the end, so full tag looks like

<%= javascript_include_tag "application", "data-turbolinks-track" => true %>
