    gatsby-plugin-remove-fingerprints

    Easily remove the output contenthash from your built JavaScript files.

    Install

    yarn add gatsby-plugin-remove-fingerprints

    How to use

    Add the plugin to your

    // In your gatsby-config.js
    plugins: [`gatsby-plugin-remove-fingerprints`];

    Why?

    Gatsby's default behaviour is to include a [contenthash] for all built JavaScript files. The default output configuration looks like this:

    return {
      filename: `[name]-[contenthash].js`,
      chunkFilename: `[name]-[contenthash].js`,
      path: directoryPath(`public`),
      publicPath: withTrailingSlash(publicPath),
    };

    This is useful for the majority of cases, but services like Netlify recommend building files without a hash. This plugin will eliminate the hash from built JavaScript files. The configuration looks like this:

    if (stage === 'build-javascript') {
      const newWebpackConfig = {
        ...getConfig(),
        output: {
          filename: `[name].js`, // no contenthash
          chunkFilename: `[name].js`, // no contenthash
          path: getConfig().output.path,
          publicPath: getConfig().output.publicPath,
        },
      };
     
      actions.replaceWebpackConfig(newWebpackConfig);
    }

    To learn more about the reasons why this is important you can read Netlify's staff response to a Gatsby issue, Netlify and cache busting urls.
