Read the official documentation.

👁️ Live Demo


An UncachedImage adds a cache-busting query param to your image src to ensure the browser requests the image from the server on every render.

Features include:

  • 🐣 Fresh image every time
    • Ensure the image is fetched from the server on every render.
  • 🖼️ Renders as an img
    • Use all the props an img supports, like src and alt.
  • 🔤 Custom cache buster option
    • Provide your own cache buster if you'd like.

Quick Start

import { UncachedImage } from "react-uncached-image";

Use just like you would a normal img tag in React:

<UncachedImage src="" />

Now this image will be fetched from the server on every render.

See UncachedImage for more information and a live, interactive example.
