TLDR: You will want to send caching instructions via HTTP headers.

The Cache-Control header has several directives to control cache behavior, expiration, and validation.

Cache Behavior:

Cache-Control: public resource can be cached by any cache

Cache-Control: private resource can only be cached by the browser

Cache-Control: no-store Sets the browser to always request the resource from the server

Cache-Control: no-cache This tells the browser to cache the file but not to use it until it checks with the server to validate we have the latest version. This validation is done with the ETag header. (


Supposing you have disabled your pwa, you may want to add those lines in your public/index.html

<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" />


Create react app provides service worker and this caches the various files on the client side. If you want you can unregister the service worker. But please note that you will not be able to serve your app in offline mode as in PWA's
