Removing Turbolinks from Rails 4

25 June 2013

If you don't want to use Turbolinks with your Rails 4 application, it's easy! Just do this:

  1. Remove the gem 'turbolinks' line from your Gemfile.
  2. Remove the //= require turbolinks from your app/assets/javascripts/application.js.
  3. Remove the two "data-turbolinks-track" => true hash key/value pairs from your app/views/layouts/application.html.erb.

Done!
