How do I install Google tag manager in a rails 5 app?!

General • Asked by Muhammad
Hi guys, I'm having a hard time trying to know how to install GTM in my new rails app. I searched for some time but found nothing to guide me through it!

In your rails layout

Place the following code in the <head></head> tag:
<!-- Google Tag Manager -->
<% if Rails.env.production? %>
document.addEventListener('turbolinks:load', function(event) {
  var url =;  dataLayer.push({
    'virtualUrl': url
new Date().getTime(),event:'gtm.js'});var f=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],
<% end %>
<!-- End Google Tag Manager -->

Place the following code in the start of the <body> tag:
<!-- Google Tag Manager (noscript) -->
<noscript><iframe src=""
height="0" width="0" style="display:none;visibility:hidden"></iframe></noscript>
<!-- End Google Tag Manager (noscript) -->

PS.: Don’t forget to replace the “GTM-XXXXXXX” with your Google Tag Manager code.


Thanks a lot, Manuel!
