Turbolinks is a JavaScript library that enables faster navigation between pages in a web application by using AJAX to fetch only the body of the page and replacing it without a full page reload. This approach significantly speeds up page transitions and enhances the user experience by maintaining the application state and avoiding unnecessary re-renders of the entire page.

Compared to traditional single-page application frameworks like React or Angular, Turbolinks offers a lightweight solution for adding seamless page transitions and improving perceived performance without the need for a full client-side rendering setup. It is actively maintained and suitable for projects where quick page loads and smooth transitions are a priority.
