grunt-cloudfront

AWS CloudFront cache invalidating grunt task.

grunt-cloudfront

Grunt task for invalidating cache on Amazon AWS CloudFront with the official AWS SDK for node.js.

Install this grunt plugin next to your project's grunt.js gruntfile with: npm install grunt-cloudfront --save-dev

Then add this line to your project's Gruntfile.js gruntfile:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-cloudfront');
// Project configuration. 
grunt.initConfig({
  cloudfront: {
    options: {
      region:'us-east-1', // your AWS region 
      distributionId:"YOUR_DISTRIBUTION_ID", // DistributionID where files are stored 
      awsProfile: 'default',
      listInvalidations:true, // if you want to see the status of invalidations 
      listDistributions:false, // if you want to see your distributions list in the console 
      version:"1.0" // if you want to invalidate a specific version (file-1.0.js) 
    },
    dev: {
      options: {
        distributionId: '** DEV KEY **'
      },
      CallerReference: Date.now().toString(),
      Paths: {
        Quantity: 1,
        Items: [ '/index.html' ]
      }
    },
    live: {
      options: {
        distributionId: '** LIVE KEY **'
      },
      CallerReference: Date.now().toString(),
      Paths: {
        Quantity: 1,
        Items: [ '/index.html' ]
      }
    }
  }
});

If an awsProfile parameter is supplied, the aws-sdk will read credentials from that profile and use them for your invalidation job. If no awsProfile is supplied, credentials will be loaded from the following environment variables if available:

AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID
AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY

You can also store them in a git ignored credential file and pass them as options to the grunt job:

{
  "accessKeyId": "ACCESS_KEY",
  "secretAccessKey": "SECRET_ACCESS_KEY"
}

Then in the job options:

grunt.initConfig({
  cloudfront: {
    options: {
      region:'us-east-1', // your AWS region 
      distributionId:"YOUR_DISTRIBUTION_ID", // DistributionID where files are stored 
      credentials:grunt.file.readJSON('path/to/aws/credentials.json'), // !!Load them from a gitignored file 
      listInvalidations:true,
      listDistributions:false,
      version:"1.0"
    }
  }
