Readme

SaveRemoteFilePlugin webpack plugin

Installing

yarn add save-remote-file-webpack-plugin --dev
or
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 manifest-webpack-plugin

Usage

const SaveRemoteFilePlugin = require('save-remote-file-webpack-plugin');
module.exports = {
    plugins: [
        new SaveRemoteFilePlugin([
            {
                url: 'https://google-analytics.com/analytics.js',
                filepath: 'js/analytics.js',
            },
        ])
    ]
}

This would emit js/analytics.45eff9ff7d6c7c1e3c3d4184fdbbed90.js and in your manifest.json something like this:
"js/analytics.js": "/dist/js/analytics.45eff9ff7d6c7c1e3c3d4184fdbbed90.js"

Options

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 output.path
  • hash - boolean whether to add a content hash to the output filename. (default: true)
