Webpack plugin to delete extraneous files created by Webpack

NOTE: Node v6+ and Webpack v2+ are supported and tested.

About

By default, this plugin will only remove files created by Webpack after compilation has completed. Zero config required. Although it can be configured to remove other files, it is not recommended.

Installation

npm install --save-dev clean-self-webpack-plugin

Usage

import webpack from 'webpack';
import path from 'path';
import del from 'del';
import CleanSelfWebpackPlugin from 'clean-self-webpack-plugin';
 
const outputPath = path.resolve(process.cwd(), 'build');
 
/*
 * Remove project files before webpack is loaded.
 * Be sure it is not async.
 *
 * It is HIGHLY recommended to handle the initial
 * build directory clean outside of this plugin / webpack.
 *
 * Popular existing packages:
 * https://github.com/isaacs/rimraf
 * https://github.com/sindresorhus/del
 *    -- I prefer this one, great glob support and has CLI (del-cli package)
 * https://github.com/jprichardson/node-fs-extra
 *
