I've set up my development setup and it works great but for some reason I can't get the twig cache to disable. I tried everything, but I have to run drush cr every time I change anything in twig templates, and it's driving me insane.


if (file_exists(__DIR__ . '/settings.local.php')) {
  include __DIR__ . '/settings.local.php';

settings.local.php AND setting.php:

$config['system.performance']['css']['preprocess'] = FALSE;
$config['system.performance']['js']['preprocess'] = FALSE;

$settings['cache']['bins']['render'] = 'cache.backend.null';

$settings['cache']['bins']['dynamic_page_cache'] = 'cache.backend.null';

services.yml AND development.services.yml

  http.response.debug_cacheability_headers: true
    debug: true
    auto_reload: true
    cache: false
    class: Drupal\Core\Cache\NullBackendFactory

I am running Drupal 8.4


In Drupal 8.4 you have to set the null cache backend for an additional cache bin, so now there are three:


$settings['cache']['bins']['render'] = 'cache.backend.null';
$settings['cache']['bins']['page'] = 'cache.backend.null';
$settings['cache']['bins']['dynamic_page_cache'] = 'cache.backend.null';

This is because the cached pages for anonymous users moved to a separate cache bin, see the change record The internal page cache now has a dedicated cache bin.
