Problem :

How can i prevent one of my Rails app Controller from loading the general css and js that is loaded on the whole app ?

Thanks for reading.

Solution :

Option 1

If page should be without any layout (which includes css and js), you can do something like this:

class MyAwesomeController < ApplicationController
  layout false

Option 2

If you need some layout, but without any css and js, create it in views/layouts. For example no_css_and_js.html.erb. Then add html without any css and js including:

<!-- layouts/no_css_and_js.html.erb -->
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <%= yield %>

Then your controller should be modified to use this layout:

class MyAwesomeController < ApplicationController
  layout 'no_css_and_js'

Option 3

Also you can modify your application layout to prevent it to load css and js:

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <% if controller_name != 'my_awesome' %>
    <%= stylesheet_link_tag    'application', media: 'all', 'data-turbolinks-track' => true %>
    <%= javascript_include_tag 'application', 'data-turbolinks-track' => true %>
  <% end %>
  <%= csrf_meta_tags %>

<%= yield %>
