AngularJS Question

Disabling AngularJS $http cache

I'm trying to disable the cache in my AngularJS app, but it isn't working with the following code:

$http.get("myurl",{cache:false})


When I use
"myurl&random="+Math.random()
, the cache is disabled; but, I'd like a different approach.

Answer

This is already answered here.

Pasting code snippet from the link for your reference.

myModule.config(['$httpProvider', function($httpProvider) {
    //initialize get if not there
    if (!$httpProvider.defaults.headers.get) {
        $httpProvider.defaults.headers.get = {};    
    }    

    // Answer edited to include suggestions from comments
    // because previous version of code introduced browser-related errors

    //disable IE ajax request caching
    $httpProvider.defaults.headers.get['If-Modified-Since'] = 'Mon, 26 Jul 1997 05:00:00 GMT';
    // extra
    $httpProvider.defaults.headers.get['Cache-Control'] = 'no-cache';
    $httpProvider.defaults.headers.get['Pragma'] = 'no-cache';
}]);
