Disable cache for JS and CSS files

How can I disable Yii caching for JS and CSS files while i’m developing?

It’s not actually caching it, but publishing it.

I don’t know how you would ‘turn that off’…

I just keep the asset directory open and clean it out after each request when needed while I’m working on scripts or styles.

I´m also interested in a solution for this. It´s very annoying to always delete the contents of the assets dir.

CAssetManager.linkAssets (PHP 5.3 required):

// config

'components' => array(

   'assetManager' => array(

     'linkAssets' => true,



You may also check the signature of CAssetManager::publish(). $forceCopy = true will copy the asset files every request.

Thank you :)
