Hey, all! In this post, I’m just going to quickly show you how you could extract the hash that’s generated using angular 2’s CLI to build with the any of the productions build flags.
ng build --target=production --environment=prod ng build --prod --env=prod ng build --prod
For starters, why does
cli add this random string in the generated files? The simple answer is what we call cache-busting. Leaving what cache is, and what it means to cache-bust for you to research on your own. So it’s great and all, but even if you’re using the
cli, you’re not necessarily using its
index.html file for anything. You might have your own way of inserting these generated files into your application. Which also means you’ll need to know the file name.
