I am modifying a module which uses css and js.
OS : WINDOWS
Magento Mode : Developer
What I've tried :
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy php bin/magento indexer:reindex deleted cache folder under var/cache deleted C:\xampp\htdocs\magento2\pub\static ( except .htaccess file)
By doing this all the css and js updates, but I have to do it each time even for minor css changes
In ubuntu, it works fine when I am in developer mode. I opened it private browser, even flushed the browser cache.
developer mode on
windows environment if we delete all the files form pub/static folder and than refresh the page it will show the updated css and js .
I have no idea its the only way to work on windows environment as in Linux in developer mode everything got updated as we refresh the page.
To remove version number from files path
Stores>Configuration>Advanced>Developer>[ Static Files Settings tab] Sign Static Files to NO
