Interesting title eh? Just had a few thoughts on TurboLinks vs. Intercooler.js that I wanted to jot down here on the blog in case anyone else out there on the internet needs help making some similar choices as the ones I’ve been mulling over the past couple weeks…
So you want to build a single page application the simple way using something like TurboLinks or Intercooler.js, right? If you’re using Ruby on Rails the choice is simple, just use TurboLinks. However, if you’re like me and you aren’t using Rails and are using something else like Python & Flask the answer is a little trickier. I mean, can you even use TurboLinks if you aren’t using Rails? Well yes! Yes you can use TurboLinks without rails. In fact, it’s quite simple. All you need to do is drop a little <script> tag in your <head> pointing to a CDN hosting the transpiled/compiled version of TurboLinks and you are well on your way!
To learn more about actually using TurboLinks, make sure to checkout TurboLink’s Official README on Github, and also take a look at my very basic TurboLinks demo as well.
So in conclusion, TurboLinks is the bomb.com and you need it in your life!
