In node.js when you
require() a module, node stores a cached version of the
module, so that all subsequent calls to
require() do not have to reload
the module from the filesystem.
decache ( Delete Cache ) lets you delete modules from node.js
this is useful when testing your modules/projects.
When testing our modules we often need to re-require the module being tested. This makes it easy.
An easy way to delete a cached module.
Install the module from npm:
npm install decache --save-dev
Use it in your code:
// require the decache module:var decache = ;// require a module that you wrote"var mymod = ;// use your module the way you need to:console; // 0 (the initial state for our counter is zero)console; // 1// delete the cached module:;//mymod = ; // fresh startconsole; // 0 (back to initial state ... zero)
Modules other than
.js, like for example,
.jsx, are supported as well.
