Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-invalidate-cloudfront --save-dev

One the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


The "invalidate_cloudfront" task


In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named invalidate_cloudfront to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

  invalidate_cloudfront: {
    options: {
      key: 'XXXXXX',
      secret: 'XXXXXX',
      distribution: 'XXXXXX'
    production: {
      files: [{
        expand: true,
        cwd: './build/',
        src: ['**/*'],
        filter: 'isFile',
        dest: ''


You need to pass in your key (Amazon Key), your secrect (Amazon Secret) and the distribution you want to clear


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
