stale?(options) public

Sets the etag and/or last_modified on the response and checks it against the client request. If the request doesn’t match the options provided, the request is considered stale and should be generated from scratch. Otherwise, it’s fresh and we don’t need to generate anything and a reply of 304 Not Modified is sent.

Parameters:

  • :etag

  • :last_modified

  • :public By default the Cache-Control header is private, set this to true if you want your application to be cachable by other devices (proxy caches).

Example:

def show
  @article = Article.find(params[:id])

  if stale?(:etag => @article, :last_modified => @article.created_at)
    @statistics = @article.really_expensive_call
    respond_to do |format|
      # all the supported formats
    end
  end
end
