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

Muhammad asked in General
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? %>
<script>
document.addEventListener('turbolinks:load', function(event) {
  var url = event.data.url;  dataLayer.push({
    'event':'pageView',
    'virtualUrl': url
  });
});(function(w,d,s,l,i){w[l]=w[l]||[];w[l].push({'gtm.start':
new Date().getTime(),event:'gtm.js'});var f=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],
j=d.createElement(s),dl=l!='dataLayer'?'&l='+l:'';j.async=true;j.src=
'https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtm.js?id='+i+dl;f.parentNode.insertBefore(j,f);
})(window,document,'script','dataLayer','GTM-XXXXXXX');
</script>
<% end %>
<!-- End Google Tag Manager -->

Place the following code in the start of the <body> tag:
<!-- Google Tag Manager (noscript) -->
<noscript><iframe src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/ns.html?id=GTM-XXXXXXX"
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!

If we want to test this in our localhost, do we have to change Rails.env.development?

Do we have a gem for that? except gtm_rails?
