View Full Version : Development Practicies - In Particular, Reloading Javascript Files

8 Jun 2010, 4:08 PM
I can't be the only one beginning Javascript/Ext development that's struggling with this. Or maybe I am.

I'm have an unbelievable $%@&ing time with my script files not reloading correctly during edits. I'm using Firefox with Firebug. I THOUGHT I turned off any caching for my development site. I edit using a basic text editor on the remote server. I add or remove that one friggin' semicolon necessary...think it's right...only to discover three refreshes later that the problem was elsewhere. Then I start getting some trailing garbage appended to the end of the file (NO idea what that's about).

To summarize, my development platform includes:
Linux Server, runing Cherokee + PHP
PHP/JS edits performed on server via ssh using mceditor
Viewing using local Windows and/or Linux Firefox + Firebug.

There's gotta be a secret to this. Something really simple - that I'm totally missing. Please give me a hint what it is. If there's an IDE that simplifies this - great.

Doesn't really make sense. I use Aptana/FF/Firebug for a majority of my development and I never have problems.
