I have made extensive use of the great bookmarklet ReCSS that reloads a page’s css without reloading the entire page. It saves masses of time when developing UI but I noticed that on certain projects it has no effect.
I realised that this was because those projects were using the equally useful Combres resource combining library for .Net. Combres uses a number in the url path for caching, and without changing that, any updates to the css file will not be delivered to the browser.
Today I sat down and tweaked the ReCSS bookmarklet so that it checks the url for the /combres.axd path in the urls and changes the number in the url if it is present.
Here is the updated ReCSS bookmarklet. Enjoy.
