SaveRemoteFilePlugin webpack plugin
yarn add save-remote-file-webpack-plugin --dev
npm install save-remote-file-webpack-plugin --save-dev
How it works
webpack 4 plugin to download & save remote files locally
It was written to allow for the downloading of https://google-analytics.com/analytics.js so that it can be served locally, but it can be used to locally download any remote file as part of the webpack build process.
The resulting file has a content hash appended to the file name after it is downloaded, and is added to your
manifest.json if you are using
const SaveRemoteFilePlugin = ;moduleexports =plugins:url: ''filepath: 'js/analytics.js'
This would emit
js/analytics.45eff9ff7d6c7c1e3c3d4184fdbbed90.js and in your
manifest.json something like this:
You can pass in either an object, or an array of objects for downloading multiple files.
- url remote URL of the remote file to save locally
- filepath filename where the file will be saved, relative to your webpack
