Stop Chrome Caching My JS Files


I will make a change to my JS files but it won't really change in the browser, I have to rename the files every time so that it reloads it. Is there some sort of .htaccess command I can add or something to make it stop caching?

It is even caching my html pages hard core. I need to reopen my entire browser just to see changes. Could it possibly be a server problem?


Solution

  • You can click the settings icon on top right corner ... | More Tools | Developer Tools | Network | Disable cache (while DevTools is open)

    For windows, this is F12 or CTRL + SHIFT + I while on mac CMD + SHIFT + I opens up DevTools.

    New path for Chrome Update Sept 2018:

    Click settings icon on the top right corner ... | Settings | Preferences | Developer Tools | Network | Disable cache (while DevTools is open)
