Sometimes loading a collection of partials can take LOOOOONG.

🤔 What if we leverage turbo_frames src and load each partial from a collection as a separate request?

This way each partial can be loaded in a separate request at it’s own pace without slowing the whole page down.

# app/views/posts/index.html.erb
<% @posts.each do |post| %>
-  <%= render partial: "posts/post", locals:{ post: post } %>
+  <%= turbo_frame_tag post, src: post_path(post), loading: :lazy, turbo_frame: "_top" do %>
+    Loading...
+  <% end %>
<% end %>

Wrap the post view into a turbo_frame_tag:

# app/views/posts/show.html.erb
+<%= turbo_frame_tag post do %>
  <%= post.title %>
  <%= post.body %>
+<% end %>

Finally, instead of rendering the template show.html.erb we will use the action to render the _post.html.erb partial:

# app/controllers/posts_controller.rb
  def index
    @posts = Post.all

  def show
    post = Post.find(params[:id])
    render partial: 'posts/post', locals: { post: }


Before: Sending 1 request: 1-request.gif

After: Sending 101 requests: 101-request.gif

⁉️🤔 So there’s the question: 1 heavy request OR 100 light requests?

If you want to reserve the #show action for the default use (rendering show.html.erb), consider generating a separate route for the turbo_frame-loaded _post partial.

To increase loading performance even more, the next step would be to replace the partial with a ViewComponent, as ViewComponents load faster than partials.
