Useful little Stimulus controller that allows you to add one or many CSS classes to the given element.

String Helpers

General helpers for strings that every Rails dev misses in their JavaScript toolbox.

Cookies helpers

Need to store or get a cookie. No need to rewrite that logic again and again.

Custom Confirm dialog

Turbo allows you to override the default confirm dialog. By adding this utility + just a few lines of good, your confirm dialogs have never looked this good!

button_to "Delete…",
filters_path(filter),
  method: :delete,
  data: {
    turbo_method: "delete",
    turbo_confirm: "Really delete this filter?",
    turbo_confirm_confirm_label: "Yes, put it in the shredder!",
    turbo_confirm_cancel_label: "Oops, no go back…",
  }

Comes with three themes:

  • light
