docker-compose not showing any changes to code

I am working on a project that uses docker-compose up to start up and run. I am not very familiar with docker-compose and I couldn’t really find an answer in the docs. According to the docs the up command rebuilds the container from the docker file, however this does not seem to happen.

When I try to add print commands for debugging nothing happens. The program already throws a few print commands and I tried changing those to be sure, and they always print the same. Do I have to add something to the up command to make the container rebuild?

    As far as I can tell, docker-compose up only builds images that don’t exist already; it will not rebuild an image whose source has changed. If you want to rebuild your image, run docker-compose build before docker-compose up.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
