EOF error javascript_include_tag Rails 4

I'm getting an error I can't seem to figure out the cause of:

EOF Error end of file reached 

called from /app/views/layouts/application.html.erb, line 6:

<%= javascript_include_tag "application", "data-turbolinks-track" => true %>

In ruby, an EOF error is a subclass of IOError, and is raised by an IO operation reaching the end of a file.

Here's some of what I've found out so far:


<%= javascript_include_tag :defaults, "data-turbolinks-track" => true %>


<%= javascript_include_tag :all, "data-turbolinks-track" => true %>

or even listing out the individual js files via javascript_include_tag work to remove the EOF error.

I thought this might be caused by some sprockets directives, so I deleted all the directives in application.js. This did not change anything.

Running rake assets:precompile also gives me:

rake aborted!
end of file reached 

Running git diff on the app/assets/javascripts directory shows 1 thing that may be of note in a .js file I had been editing recently:

+$(document).on('ready page:load', function() {
+     // some code I had written
\ No newline at end of file

That "no newline at end of file" bit... I have never seen that before. However, I just inserted a newline at the end of the same file and committed the change, and that comment is now gone from the diff.

EDIT: Pointing my browser to localhost:3000/assets/application.js gives me this:

throw Error("EOFError: end of file reached")

I am thoroughly stumped and have been trying to debug this for the entire day. Why is this error occurring? Here is the stacktrace from when I run rake assets:precompile:

Try deleting your local project directory and checking out a fresh copy.

I experienced an aborted rails server startup today that perhaps left my system in an inconsistent state and resulted in the same exact error you were experiencing. A ruby 2.0.0-p0 segfault stopped my rails server startup, after which I could not load any pages due to the aforementioned error.

I do not know for sure what caused this original failure, unfortunately. Fortunately, I don't have to deal with it anymore on my end!

If you still have your old repo lying around, then you can run bundle exec rake tmp:clear. I reckon that'll fix it.

Cleaning up the temp files using the following command fixes this issue:

rake tmp:clear

If you're having this problem on Windows, try going into your Gemfile.lock file and manually changing the value of coffee-script-source to 1.8.0 (mine started as Something about newer versions doesn't play nice for whatever reason.
