Turbolinks react

Rails developers are usually pretty lazy when it comes to Javascript (although, most developers are pretty lazy). JQuery waits for DOMContentLoaded to fire before handing off execution to the function in ready . But Turbolinks takes DOMContentLoaded away from us, and gives us a couple other events instead . Try attaching events to these instead, or using JQuery’s .on to attach event handlers to the document (as opposed to individual nodes). This removal of the load and DOMContentLoaded events can wreak havoc on existing Javascript that uses page ready listeners everywhere, and why I wouldn’t recommend using Turbolinks on existing projects, and using it for greenfield only.

The whole fun starts, when the user visits a previously cached page. In that case, Turbolinks will emit turbolinks:before-render immediately after caching up the previous page. Then it will replace the body and header tags with the cached version of the page which is being loaded from the server. This operation is concluded with single turbolinks:render event, without firing the load event. When the AJAX call is finished, another turbolinks:before-render event is emmited (for the cached version), and the flow continues as in the uncached version. The load event is called only after rendering the server version of the page.

An immediately-invoked function expression is a pattern which produces a lexical scope using JavaScript's function scoping. Immediately-invoked function expressions can be used to avoid variable hoisting from within blocks, protect against polluting the global environment and simultaneously allow public access to methods while retaining privacy for variables defined within the function.

This pattern has been referred to as a self-executing anonymous function, but @cowboy (Ben Alman) introduced the term IIFE as a more semantically accurate term for the pattern .
