Image from store CloudFlare Purge Plugin
Description from store The Cloudflare purge plugin uses the Cloudflare API to purge any page of a website that serves its contents through the Cloudflare CDN. After you set your CF e-mail and API key in the options, you can purge the cache of any page of your CF enabled website. After version 1.3, you can purge the entire cache for the domain of your current tab. Updates: ========================================= v1.6.2: Refactored the way the extension makes asynchronous requests to the Cloudflare API to follow the Chrome safety requirements and use a background page. v1.6.1: Added support for Cloudflare API Tokens. Please check https://www.cf-purge.com/token-setup.html to find out more. v1.6.0: Rewrote the whole extension using the latest ECMA script 7 APIs. The extension executes code in a non-blocking manner. Refreshed the UI with a new design. The next version (1.6.1) will support the long awaited CloudFlare restricted API keys. Stay tuned. v1.5.1: Added a new feature for managing CloudFlare DEV mode for your domains v1.5.0: Added support for Mozilla Firefox v 1.4.3: Masked the API key input. Fixed issues with the parsing of second level domains in the URL. v 1.4.2: Added an option to show/hide the "Purge Entire Cache" button v 1.4.1: Fixed a critical issue when purging domains without a leading sub-domain v 1.4.0: Changed the design to reflect the new CloudFlare design guidelines. Refactored the extension code and optimized the API calls. v 1.3.6: Included the ability to purge multiple URLs at the same time from the options screen. v 1.3.5: Added a way to check the error message that gets returned from Cloudflare by clicking on the "Purge failed" red text v 1.3.4: Fixed an issue when trying to purge apex domains v 1.3.3: Changed the logic for the "Info" button to show the info even when some parts of it are missing v 1.3.2: Added a new "Info" button that shows the Cloudflare node, Ray ID and the current Cache-Control header values. v 1.3.1: Pushed a fix for a bug related to anchor links with spaces in the URL. Thanks to "solarroger". v 1.3: Added a new option to purge the whole cache for the domain of the current tab v 1.2.2: A small bug fix for the refresh functionality caused by auto updates. v 1.2.1: Added a new refresh timeout option that delays the page refresh. v 1.1: Includes a refresh function that refreshes the page on a successful purge v 1.0: The extension includes all the basic functionality that you need to purge the URL in your active tab.

  • (2020-02-08) Gregor Czubak: The plugin makes emptying the cache much easier.
  • (2019-05-15) Steve Seguin: It just works and makes using cloudflare all that more pleasant. Sorta wish I could get a reminder that the dev-mode has expired or something, or even a color changing icon to indicate status, but that makes this no less awesome. Thank you for sharing it.

  • (2017-05-01) Prince_Clark: Так и не понял, что оно делает!
  • (2017-01-09) Michel Laevens: It does the job ! I typed "Cloudflare" in the chrome web store with little hope. And there it was : the CloudFlare Purge Plugin. No more need to access cloudflare, click on cache screen, click the button, select the url,... Great !
  • (2016-12-16) S OOKKOLE: This is my safe area
  • (2016-08-08) 서재현: 좋아요-! 편리하네요 :)
  • (2016-02-19) Charles Cai: Great tool and super helpful. Good job!
  • (2015-12-04) Jake Gordon: Full disclosure: I work with the guy who developed this -- but we use it tons of time every day. It's super simple and really shines when you do something like make changes to a one-off file and you want the changes to go into affect immediately.

  • (2021-03-13, v:1.6.2) I'm a Puzzle Team: Purge individual images, css or json files
    Hi Tosho, I understand that you currently don't go recursively through all the page elements to purge them. Maybe a simple solution would be to add a right menu item "Cloudflare purge this". This item would appear when clicking on an image (, video, etc) or when clicking on an item in the Network panel from the developers tab. If you need some help implementing the right menu item, please let me know. I already did it for images. Cheers,

  • (2020-11-10, v:1.6.2) Eitan Caspi: Screenshot update
    Hi, At https://www.cf-purge.com/token-setup.html, CF has changed the action for "Cache Purge" from "Edit" to "Purge". The screenshot at the guide still shows "Edit", so please consider to update it. thanks.
  • (2020-07-08, v:1.6.2) Željko Erceg: Two different cloudflare accounts
    Is it possible to add another different Cloudflare account / API in extension, and choose between them?
  • (2020-01-29, v:1.6.1) Eitan Caspi: Purge fails
    Hi, I created a custom token according to the setup page and when I try a "purge everything" but I get "PURGE FAILED". Also the " Show CloudFlare CDN page info" fails with "NO INFO AVAILABLE". I tried it twice and both failed. In both cases I run the curl command CF gives to check the key and I got: {"result":{"id":"long number here","status":"active"},"success":true,"errors":[],"messages":[{"code":10000,"message":"This API Token is valid and active","type":null}]} My config is: Refresh T/O = 10 Both check boxes are disabled (not selected) First two text boxes are empty The API Token field holds the api key from CF How can I make it work? Thanks!
  • (2019-08-14, v:1.5.1) Mark Sanger: Support Cloudflare's new restricted API keys
    Cloudflare have just rolled out restrictive API keys. It allows you to create an API key that only has access to purging cache. This is what many of us have been waiting for and is now a perfect fit for your extension.
  • (2018-12-13, v:1.4.3) Helge Fahrnberger: Scope of plugin?
    Does this plugin delete the html page only or also all files (images, css, js, etc) the page contains? I would need the second.
  • (2018-11-22, v:1.4.3) Mark Sanger: Two questions
    First of all, thank you for making such an awesome app. I do have some fears which I hope you can help with. 1) Please can you point me to the exact part of the code that proves that your app is limited in scope to only purging cache. Cloudflare API access ultimately allows you to do anything to a devastating degree. 2) As an API key is essentially a password of critical importance, how is this stored and transmitted exactly in order to avoid any potential leakage to you as a developer or to outside world?
  • (2018-07-12, v:1.4.3) Soroush: Developing Mode
    Hey, great plugin. Please add an "in dev mode" switch to the plugin. Helps a lot.
  • (2018-05-30, v:1.4.3) Jules Gravinese: Hard Refresh, Firefox
    1) Can you make this plugin reload the page bypassing internal cache? Perhaps a setting for pausing after the purge, before hard refreshing the page. 2) Also, please release a version for Firefox.

  • (2016-08-19, v:1.3.5) Justine: Have option to hide/remove purge entire cache button
    Please include and option to remove/hide the "Purge Entire Cache" in the options. If I accidentally pressed this button it would be disastrous for my website.
  • (2016-07-31, v:1.3.5) Tosho Toshev: Multiple clear multiple URLs
    If I create a new widget feature that clears multiple URLs at once, would you like that?
  • (2016-07-03, v:1.3.4) Purge Entire Cache not working
    I installed the plugin and found that purging a single page shows succes, but purging the entire cache for my site gives a failed message. Purging the entire cache is necessary when I make changes to a CSS file, which is not purged when a single page is purged. Any idea?
  • (2016-03-16, v:1.3.3) Keven Lefebvre: Problem when no "www"
    Hi, I just installed the extension and when trying to purge cache with domain.com, it doesn't work. It tries to call https://api.cloudflare.com/client/v4/zones?name=com instead of https://api.cloudflare.com/client/v4/zones?name=domain.com But when I click purge cache with www.domain.com, it works, it calls https://api.cloudflare.com/client/v4/zones?name=domain.com Would be nice to have a fix for that :-D
