View Full Version : Timestamp at the end of CSS and JS url breaking cache in production?

11 Nov 2012, 11:32 AM
Hi there

I have the problem that in production build, in the Chrome network console, the urls for app.css and app.js look like this:

Why is that? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of the local storage?

Also, I notice that after a reload, app.js seems not to be loaded again, but app.css is loaded every time.

Relevant parts from app.json:

"css": [
"path": "resources/css/app.css",
"update": "delta"

"appCache": {
* List of items in the CACHE MANIFEST section
"cache": [

What am I missing?

The reason for the CSS file missig in cache was that is was much too big (3.8 MB) because of many embedded images, where webkit browsers have a max. file size of 2.5 MB that they will put in cache.

But the question remains: Why are there timestamps on the URLs in production? How can they be turned off?
