Avoid rails helper times_ago_in_words()

Let’s say we have 100 records in lessons table then
 %td.last_modified= times_ago_in_words(lesson.updated_at)

server calculate the time ago for each record for each request, it wastes a lot of time on server side.
If we replace above code by

 %td.last_modified"= lesson.updated_at.to_s

and load jquery plugin 

<script src="jquery.timeago.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

then in JavaScript


thats it.
Then the javascript will calculate the time ago on client side after loading the page in browser.
So you can enhance your app response time.
