CloudFront cache purger for the Blitz plugin for Craft CMS.

1.0.0 2019-04-15 20:33 UTC


The CloudFront Purger allows the Blitz plugin for Craft CMS to intelligently purge cached pages.

Note that Amazon CloudFront charges for invalidation requests. Since invalidation requests can quickly add up when purging individual URLs, you should be aware of the potential costs. PutYourLightsOn takes no responsibility whatsoever for expenses incurred.

No additional charge for the first 1,000 paths requested for invalidation each month. Thereafter, $0.005 per path requested for invalidation.

A path listed in your invalidation request represents the URL (or multiple URLs if the path contains a wildcard character) of the object(s) you want to invalidate from CloudFront cache.
