    Cache Buster for Angular JS $http and $resource. Especially useful with Internet Explorer (IE8, IE9)

    install

    bower install angular-cache-buster --save
    

    In your app module definition, add ngCacheBuster as a dependency

    angular.module('myApp', ['ngCacheBuster']);
    

    configure

    AngularCacheBuster adds a cache buster to any $http requests (and hence to $resource requests). Since you probably want to maintain browser caching for your views, partials or other routes, you can supply a list of regexes that will be matched against all URL's. By default the supplied matchlist is a whitelist (i.e. busting everything not matching an entry in the list) but you can also set it to be a blacklist, (i.e. busting everything except the matching entries)

    For instance, if you want to bust everything except views in a 'partials' folder and images in a 'images' folder , you can configure AngularCacheBuster this way:

    angular.module('yourApp', ['ngCacheBuster'])
      .config(function(httpRequestInterceptorCacheBusterProvider){
        httpRequestInterceptorCacheBusterProvider.setMatchlist([/.*partials.*/,/.*images.*/]);
      });
    

    If instead you want to allow everything to be cached, except your "/api/users" and "api/orders" (assuming they are the only things that change frequently), you can supply a matchlist as before, but pass in a second boolean argument "blacklist" set to true as well:

    angular.module('yourApp', ['ngCacheBuster'])
      .config(function(httpRequestInterceptorCacheBusterProvider){
        httpRequestInterceptorCacheBusterProvider.setMatchlist([/.*orders.*/,/.*users.*/],true);
      });
    

    use

    That's it! All your resource calls will have a cache buster added for anything not in the whitelist, or if you specified "blacklist", for everything matching the blacklist,

    test

    karma start to launch the tests
