Using bl.ocks.org in Chrome-/ium
I realized a ‘reload-problem’ with that tool, already in my first tests with it. When I updated a Gist file, bl.ocks.org seemed to not update the visualisation! At least, I always just saw the old version of my code. (Discussed but not solved here)
After short googling, my first idea was confirmed: http://superuser.com/questions/89809/how-to-force-refresh-without-cache-in-google-chrome
The ‘problem’ is the caching of chromium! It caches so well, that even the ‘Ctrl+R’ or ‘Shift+F5’ trick did not make it. (Actually, caching is no problem, as it supports the nice speed of Chrome/-ium)
In chromium (and I think also in Chrome) …you have to enable the browser caching!
Let’s do it:
- open the development tools (Ctrl+Shift+i)
- open the ‘settings‘ (‘gearing wheel’ in the lower, right corner)
- check the box of ‘Disable cache‘
That’s it…now bl.ocks.org instantly shows the new version of my Gists!
***Actually…it is not instantly! There seems to exist another, inernal cache at bl.ocks.org…which causes a delay of max. 10min before you can finally see the new version of your data!
