And I also see that the sheets extension doesn't consult the "cache?" method of the StylesheetPage (or JavascriptPage) so that's why going down that road that didn't work either.

I'm going to submit a pull request for that.

OK, so I looked into the sheets extension that is now bundled by default with Radiant, and I see where the default cache timeout for sheets is set to 30 days.

I attempted to modify it alongside the standard page cache timeout like so:

config.after_initialize do
  SiteController.cache_timeout = 1.second
  SiteController.sheet_cache_timeout = 1.second
end

but this generates a

undefined method `sheet_cache_timeout=' for SiteController:Class (NoMethodError)

error. I'm guessing this is because the sheets extension hasn't being activated yet.

Where would I take advantage of resetting the SiteController.sheet_cache_timeout setting?

I need to allow a Radiant user to edit stylesheets and immediately see the results in generated pages, which means I want to effectively turn off caching for stylesheets.

I have set the cache timeout to 1 second in environment.rb (for some reason, setting it to 0 doesn't work in Chrome - great ;]), like so:

config.after_initialize do
  SiteController.cache_timeout = 1.second
end

and regular pages show this response header

  1.
      Cache-Control:
      max-age=1, public


But for a stylesheet request, I keep seeing a response header of

  1.
      Cache-Control:
      max-age=2592000, public


which is effectively 30 days.

Stylesheets are served through the SiteController like anything else - so I don't understand why they don't appear to be subject to the same caching controls as everything else?

Should stylesheets obey the normal page caching rules?

(I have also tried overriding the "cache?" method of StylesheetPage to no avail, FYI).

Thanks,
Wes
