Anyone knows why Jekyll css/scss theme doesn't get updated immediately using GitHub?

Hi, I’m wondering if someone can help me find an answer to this problem I’ve been having.

I’ve been using Jekyll for my website for about a month by now. I use GitHub to publish my website, and everything’s been working well, except that CSS/SCSS theme update doesn’t get applied immediately. While everything content-wise shows up right after I push local changes to the repo, theme updates don’t, and they take few hours before appearing online.

I’m not terribly concerned since everything works out eventually, and I have enough patience, but I’m still curious if this is normal, and would be more than happy to know if there is a way to fix this behavior.

Thank you!

are you sure it is not just caching it?

Shift + F5 doesn’t pull in the changes?

I’m not sure. I made more changes to test if this might be the issue with caching as you said, only to find that updates were applied much faster this time. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I made fewer changes than the last time. :confused:
