Webpack Delete Plugin

The Webpack Delete plugin is used to delete files after completing the output process.


npm install webpack-delete-plugin --save-dev


This plugin runs async after the output has been completed. Use it to delete files after they've been built! This plugin does not clean folders for pre-processing.

General Use

module.exports = {
  plugins: [
    new WebpackDeletePlugin(["./path/file.js", "./path/**/*", "./path/folder/**"])

Delete entire folders with ./path/folder/** - this will delete the folder and everything inside.

WebpackDeletePlugin takes a string or array of strings as input.
