    Hot Reload Static Files by Clearing Service Worker Cache while Developing


    Once you register a Service Worker, the application will have the static files cached, making hard development since you’ll not see any changes. In addition, caching probably will happen on the server as well, making it even harder.

    In this lesson you’ll understand how a service worker gets updated and learn how to continue developing, avoiding common pitfalls.
