Why javascript only loads once (Rails 4)


Can someone explain to me why is this behaviour please?

The code below only works if I reload the page. It does not work when
page is loaded through a link. I imagine
that part of the problem is turbolink and ajax, then how do I solve this
problem? I did try to move the javascript tag from the top to
the bottom of the page in the application layout, but that gave me
I am using cocoon and every time I want to use a nested
attribute instead of a single copy I am getting multiple. An undesired

Thank you

This is my application.js

//= require jquery
//= require jquery-ui
//= require jquery_ujs
//= require turbolinks
//= require cocoon
//= require bootstrap.min.js
//= require_tree .

jQuery ->
$(’.search-btn’).click ->

Any time you see a JavaScript working when it is a fresh load (or
reload) of the page, but not on a link, you are being trapped by
Turbolinks. The best way to solve this is to wrap any functions in a
listener on the page:change event, which is fired by Turbolinks both
when the page is loaded (at the same time as dom:loaded) but also
whenever TL has refreshed part of the page.


Thank you Walter, that worked.
