Is `gatsby-plugin-remove-fingerprints` still recommended for Gatsby + Netlify sites?

This is a general question - I’m debugging some caching issues on my site and wondering if this plugin is still recommended. The Gatsby docs say “services like Netlify recommend building files without a hash” but the supporting links are either broken or a few years old and this post said removing the plugin helped fix a caching issue.

Should I use the remove fingerprints plugin or delete it? Thanks for your help!

HI @kelley

The short answer is yes Netlify recommends building without hashes.

As per [Support Guide] Making the most of Netlify's CDN cache

Gatsby for instance uses asset fingerprinted filenames intentionally, which breaks Netlify’s usual caching.
