File Watching Cache Cleaner for Magento 2


Frustrated by Magento? Then you’ll love Commerce Bug, the must have debugging extension for anyone using Magento. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned pro, Commerce Bug will save you and your team hours everyday. Grab a copy and start working with Magento instead of against it.

Updated for Magento 2! No Frills Magento Layout is the only Magento front end book you'll ever need. Get your copy today!

Vinai Kopp (of magetv fame) just released a small project with an improved cache cleaner for Magento 2, and it includes a file watcher. i.e. if you change a file that typically requires you to clean your cache to see changes, (like a controller or a layout XML file), this watcher will automatically notice and clear your cache for you. It also sounds like the watcher includes some smarts so only the caches you need to to clear are cleared, and it also includes support for the varnish full page cache.

I dislike that web development’s gotten so complicated that these sort of tools are needed, but if I was working with M2 this would be an instant install.
