gulp-css-resource-cache-buster

Build Status npm version

Cache buster for resources specified in CSS files.

This plugin add a query string to the resouce URLs in the CSS. The query string is a MD5 of the resource. So, when the resource got changed, an user agent can not use the cache, because the URL was changed.

You should specify a URL converting table that is a map to URLs in the CSS to the real URLs to the resource. This plugin fetch the resource to get the MD5 if the real URL is a remote URL.

For example:

@font-face {
  font-family: 'MyFont';
  src: url('local/rel/file.eot') format('eot'),
       url('/local/abs/file.woff') format('woff'),
       url('/remote/file.ttf') format('truetype');
}

becomes:

@font-face {
  font-family: 'MyFont';
  src: url('local/rel/file.eot?md5-by-cache-buster=dbbe284acff8af485a7513fc14d8cabd') format('eot'),
       url('/local/abs/file.woff?md5-by-cache-buster=1c318b6e722437694bba4bed80aff46f') format('woff'),
       url('/remote/file.ttf?md5-by-cache-buster=ee25807e36fcdcdf4ea55311f15e3f66') format('truetype');
}

by the code:

gulp.src('path/to/file.css')
  .pipe(cssResourceCacheBuster({
    'local/rel/file.eot': './local/rel/file.eot',
    '/local/abs/file.woff': './local/abs/file.woff',
    '/remote/file.ttf': 'http://example.com/remote/file.ttf'
  }))
  .pipe(gulp.dest('path/to/modified-file.css'));
