disable EJS caching in production


It seems like whenever my process.NODE_ENV is set to production, EJS templating engine will cache all my .html files. So any modifications in those files will not be displayed, unless server restarts.

app.engine('.html', require('ejs').__express);

Is there a way to disable caching template on express? Thanks!


It seems like <a href="https://github.com/expressjs/express/blob/e5ec966b2f068e935ea1b33374fac133dd06cdc8/lib/application.js#L117" rel="nofollow">this is set explicitly as part of express's built-in code</a>

if (env === 'production') { this.enable('view cache'); }

This gets called by app.init which is called by createApplication which is the function that gets exported and what you probably are calling with app = express(). You can immediately disable the caching on your own:

app = express(); app.disable('view cache');
