Disable the Cache in Safari 11

Hints HOWTOs Web Development
Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 1 Comment

With Safari 11 – we lost the “Disable Cache” in the Safari Developer menu. If you are a developer – you know this comes in handy when debugging any CSS/JS changes.

After spending a few days frustrated – it was time to find a solution so I could disable the cache (permanently). If you are looking for the same solution – look no further.

Using the command line:

rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari ; echo > ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari

That will remove the current cache forever and replace it with a file (not used to do any caching).

You are welcome.

    Thank you! I’ve been frustrated with this since they launched 11.0
    Wonder why they removed the disable cache option.
