PRevent generating Assets after page reload

Hi.

The problem is that minified files always regenerating after page reloaded. How can i prevent this until my minified content actually changed?

        $di->set('assets', function() use ($config) {
            $assets = new \Phalcon\Assets\Manager();
            $assets
                ->addJs('//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.1/jquery.min.js', false)
                ->addJs('//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.0.3/js/bootstrap.min.js', false);
            $assets
                ->collection('headerCss')
                ->addCss('https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.5/css/bootstrap.min.css', false, false)
                ->addCss('https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.4.0/css/font-awesome.min.css', false, false)
                ->addCss('https://code.ionicframework.com/ionicons/2.0.1/css/ionicons.min.css', false, false)
                ->addCss($config->application->backendAssets.'/plugins/jvectormap/jquery-jvectormap-1.2.2.css', true)
                ->setTargetPath($config->application->documentRoot.'/assets/css/css.minified.backend.css')
                ->setTargetUri('p/assets/css/css.minified.backend.css')
                ->join(true)
                ->addFilter(new \Phalcon\Assets\Filters\Cssmin())
            ;
            return $assets;
        });

https://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon/issues/549 it says there are functions like

compileAlways()
setTargetPath()

but i dont see them in latest docs, neighter in source code.

But never the less i dont think there was ever functionality to watch for changes, you should use gulp / grunt

Well i implemented In pretty simple way - in view i just have:

{% if request.hasQuery("flush") %}
{{ assets.outputJs("js") }}
{% else %}
<script src="/js/production.js"></script>
{% endif %}

You have to add ?flush - then all js will be regenerated and mindified again. If there are no ?flush its loading production.js which is my genrerated file from assets.outputJs.

Yeahh... A bit old thread. Thanks for pointing. I do not want use gulp/grunt because I do not use complex JS in the project, where that can be used.
