how to automatically "rebuild" template files?

Right now I need to delete my base template and others (the .php file generated by Volt) every time I made some change in my editor.

How can I automate this process via dependency injection or something else, so the rebuilding is done every time on every page reload/refresh in the browser?

I hope there is some solution, because it's nice that is cached in the final app, but during the development I need to see the cahnges straight ahead and not only after I delete the base.phtml.php.

Btw. this is my code in the boostrap file:

 //Setup the view component
    $di->set('view', function(){
        $view = new \Phalcon\Mvc\View();
        $view->setViewsDir('../app/views/');
        $view->registerEngines(array(
            ".phtml" => 'Phalcon\Mvc\View\Engine\Volt'
        ));
        return $view;
    });

Take a look at compileAlways option (true\false, i put it into config to have different variants on different environments)

    $view->registerEngines(array(
        '.volt' => function($view, $di) use ($config) {

            $volt = new VoltEngine($view, $di);

            $volt->setOptions(array(
                'compiledPath' => $config->application->cacheVoltDir,
                'compiledSeparator' => '_',
                'compileAlways' => $config->application->alwaysRecompileView
            ));

            return $volt;
        },
        '.phtml' => 'Phalcon\Mvc\View\Engine\Php'
    ));
