Suffix asset file names with a timestamp to invalidate cache if a new asset is uploaded on the server.

When you include assets like images, stylesheets or javascripts, your website visitors might not see new changes depending on their browser cache settings. AutoVersion will force the cache to invalidate.


In your terminal, just run:

composer require "stephanecoinon/autoversion":"dev-master"


This package is framework agnostic, the configuration process is:

// Auto-load composer packages
require 'vendor/autoload.php';

// Configure the document root

And if you're using the excellent Laravel framework, it's even simpler: just add the service provider in app/config/app.php:

'providers' => array(

	// Your current providers are here ...


The service provider will take care of:

  • automatically loading the package
  • configuring the document root to public_path()
  • adding the AutoVersion class as an alias making it accessible easily from anywhere


In your views, just call:

// $pathToAsset is relative to the document root configured above

for example:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="<?=AutoVersion::asset('css/main.css') ?>">

Or with Laravel blade:

{{ HTML::style(AutoVersion::asset('css/main.css')) }}
