How to configure AddThis to work with Turbolinks - Rails 4
// turbolinks addthis
var initAdthis;
initAdthis = function(){
// Remove all global properties set by addthis, otherwise it won't reinitialize
for (var i in window) {
if (/^addthis/.test(i) || /^_at/.test(i)) {
delete window[i];
window.addthis_share = null;
// Finally, load addthis

Thanks for the workaround.

It works. But when page loads, some error occur:

Uncaught ReferenceError: _atr is not defined
    at addthis_widget.js?_=1484985323526:2
Uncaught ReferenceError: addthis is not defined
    at _handleScroll (addthis_widget.js?_=1484985323526:2)

I'm having the same problem. First I changed:

$(document).on('ready page:change', function() {


$(document).on('page:change', function() {

otherwise initAdthis is called twice on first page load.

However, the _atr is not defined error multiplies as I browse through the website. I think AddThis adds an event that needs to be removed before page:change.
