DEPRECATED This plugin will be deprecated for Leiningen 2.8+ since from that version, Leiningen will deprecate hooks. Read more here: Leiningen 2.8 Update Notes

A simple cache buster for lein-cljsbuild. This plugin will append a timestamp fingerprint as a query string after the assets filename.

For a more sophisticated cache busting solution, check out Optimus.


via Leiningen:

:plugins [[cljs-simple-cache-buster "0.2.1"]]


You can supply the configuration inside a :cljs-simple-cache-buster map like so:

:cljs-simple-cache-buster {:cljsbuild-id "min"
                           :template-file "resources/template/index.html"
                           :output-to "resources/public/index.html"}

All configuration options can be a single string or a vector of strings, so you can do something like:

:cljs-simple-cache-buster {:cljsbuild-id ["min" "dev"]
                           :template-file ["resources/template/index.html"
                           :output-to ["resources/public/index.html"

Template file

The plugin will use the template file to find the location to put the fingerprint. Append {{ fingerprint }} as the query string for the assets path, for example:

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/compiled/myapp.js?v={{ fingerprint }}"></script>


<link href="css/style.css?v={{ fingerprint }}" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

Fingerprint method

By default, the fingerprint uses the timestamp the moment you compile your ClojureScript app using lein-cljsbuild. To supply your own custom value, supply the string value to :fingerprint option in the configuration.
