Please don't top-post.

Nginx was probably suggested as a lightweight web server, instead of
Apache. I can't say I've ever seen both used at the same time.

Any developer who is serious about their career has an understanding of how
web servers work and the server caching capabilities. If they don't, I
think it's fair to say they're still pretty junior and ideally would be
helped by a more senior developer.

I struggle to understand why you're making PHP responsible for trying to
cache js files that are only requested by the front end. It feels like
you're overcomplicating things somewhat.

i'll top-post whenever i like.. don't tell other ppl how to format
documentation / discussions, please.

and to answer to your comment : i strongly disagree. it makes sense for those working on complicated webapps to limit the number of knowledge pools
they must master and keep up to date..
hell, i dont even get into canvas and webgl because the knowledge domain is
so large and different from *my domain*; HTML, JS, CSS, JSON..
seriously, you can not expect complicated beautiful apps to be written for
browsers until you recognize that limitation on human ability..

Works on “complicated webapps” and “limits number of knowledge pools” are opposites. You need to find the right tool for the job. In this case, PHP is not the right tool.
