Grav CDN Plugin

This is a simple Grav plugin that takes provides a simple way to integrate a Pull Zone CDN service (such as MaxCDN) with minimal fuss.


Installing the CDN plugin can be done in one of two ways. Our GPM (Grav Package Manager) installation method enables you to quickly and easily install the plugin with a simple terminal command, while the manual method enables you to do so via a zip file.

GPM Installation (Preferred)

The simplest way to install this plugin is via the Grav Package Manager (GPM) through your system's Terminal (also called the command line). From the root of your Grav install type:

bin/gpm install cdn

This will install the CDN plugin into your /user/plugins directory within Grav. Its files can be found under /your/site/grav/user/plugins/cdn.

Manual Installation

To install this plugin, just download the zip version of this repository and unzip it under /your/site/grav/user/plugins. Then, rename the folder to cdn. You can find these files either on GitHub or via

You should now have all the plugin files under



The default configuration provided in the user/config/plugins/cdn.yaml file contains sensible defaults:

enabled: true                                           # set to false to disable this plugin completely
inline_css_replace: true                                # Replace inline css url() references
pullzone:                            # pullzone domain
tags: 'a|link|img|script'                               # HTML tags to search
extensions: 'jpe?g|png|gif|ttf|otf|svg|woff|xml|js|css' # File extensions to replace on

To make modifications, please copy this file into user/config/plugins/cdn.yaml and edit the fields to tweak settings

HTML tags with the configured list of tags will be rewritten with the pullzone domain you configure if one of the extensions is found.

Forcing Local Links

There are occassions where a particular link should not be served via the CDN. In these cases you can simple pass the query element nocdn in the URL. For example:

Markdown Syntax


Twig Syntax
{{['myimage.jpg'].nocdn }}


{{['myimage.jpg'].nocdn.cropResize(500,200).grayscale }}

Important note about font files

If you are hosting custom font files (eot, ttf, otf, or woff) you need to be aware that it requires setting the Access-Control-Allow-Origin header to the domain serving your Grav site or use wildcard-origin (*).

# Apache config
<FilesMatch ".(eot|ttf|otf|woff)">
	Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"

# nginx config
if ($filename ~* ^.*?\.(eot)|(ttf)|(woff)$){
	add_header Access-Control-Allow-Origin *;
