Have to manually flush caches to see CSS changes

Have to manually flush caches to see CSS changes

Hi-

 

I've followed the directions here to disable the magento system cache, but am still forced to manually clear caches each time I change something in CSS. Slowing things down quite a bit!

 

Note: two of the cache types mentioned in the post do not appear on my admin cache management page: View files fallback and View files pre-processing do not show up.

 

Suggestions?

Did you try to put in "Stores/Configuration/Advanced/Developer" at "Frontend development workflow" the value to "Client side less compilation"? Also in this mode you are forced to manually clear cache?

I would suggest to use grunt watch together with LiveReload to automatically track for changes and recompile LESS files. It will also generate sourcemaps.
