I’m my new application I’m using Rails 7.0.4 as I commented on my last post.

I don’t know yet how works importmap. I have just a little idea.

So let’s say in you have an file named app/views/layouts/application.html.erb. This file is the entire layout for your site.

As you can see, inside this file there is a declaration to load the javascript files using importmap:

  <%= javascript_importmap_tags %>

Well, this method does not behave as desired with our devise templates.

If you go to your sign_in url, usually and click on the submit button without entering no data. You will notice nothing at all.

This is because importmap is using an XHR request but not loading the turbo data in the page. I have searched a lot about this issue but found nothing.

The only thing I found useful was the idea of using another layout only for devise without using importmap. So I did that. I created an exact copy of the app/views/layouts/application.html.erb named app/views/layouts/session.html.erb replacing the javascript part mentioned before for this one:

  <%= javascript_include_tag %>

And let decide the application which layout use in each case in the file app/controllers/application_controller.rb with this content:

# frozen_string_literal: true

class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
  layout :layout_by_resource


    def layout_by_resource
      devise_controller? ? "session" : "application"

So now I can see and format my Devise validations.
