caching web app - load from cache unless a new version is published
Posted on 2015-02-19
I have a web app
Its pretty heavy in size, so caching is good, whenever we do a release we have to clear the browser cache to load the new version
I dont want to force loading of content everytime someone logs in, so i'm wondering what options i have
thinking purely in terms of ways it could work, i'm wondering if i could store a version number in cookies, and it would request version number when loading login page..... if its the same then use the cache, if not, then dont use the browser cache
is this even possible?
Whats the best way to do it?
