"laravel and view caching in development — can't see changes right away" Answer’s


The #laravel IRC channel is a God send. This had nothing to do with Laravel's behavior at all. This was actually something PHP 5.5 was doing.

The reason this was so baffling is because I upgraded my PHP version from 5.3 and never had this issue.

In your .ini file, you need to tweak your OPcache settings. For me, these settings began at line 1087 in the .ini file and looked something like this:


Take particular note of the opcache.revalidate_freq=60. This is what is actually making your views cache. If this is not the desired behavior, set the value to 0 and your views will update every time you make a change. Yay!

EDIT AUGUST 21, 2014

As mentioned by Matt below, make sure to restart your web server to see your changes take effect after you have changed your .ini file.
