🍿 Our Weekly Snack: Next.js 15 and Caching: A Paradigm Shift

Previously (Next.js 14), fetch requests automatically defaulted to caching and you had to purge your cache to opt out of caching.

Remember this?

It's the default option I'm talking about - cache: force-cache.

Next.js 15 introduces a fundamental shift: fetch requests are no longer cached by default 😳.

This empowers developers with greater control over caching strategies, but manual configuration might be required for specific use cases.

Considerations for Upgrading Applications

Upgrading from Next.js 14 to 15 could potentially disrupt applications that rely on the previous caching behaviour.

To maintain consistent behaviour, you may need to explicitly specify cache: 'force-cache' for relevant fetch requests.
