Excellent solution
By , for WP 4.1.1

I didn't want to provide designers access to cloudflare, so this plugin was perfect for what I needed. They can purge cache whenever they needed to, and has the nice option to purge cache when new content is posted.

The only thing I'd like to see is the API key obfuscated or shown only after an authentication or something.

nice plugin, but auto purge doesn't work

I tested this plugin and file purge works fine but auto-file-purge doesn't do the work on post update

Works as expected, very little to improve if anything

This plugin works exactly as I expected. It will purge the CloudFlare cache for the front page on new posts, or purge the frontpage and posts that have been updated.

If you are doing more than the default Cloudflare caching, such as using Page Rules to cache your entire site, you may need to purge assets from the Cloudflare cache manually.

I don't think this plugin can know what extra assets to purge from the Cloudflare cache, but if it could, that is probably the only other possible improvement.

E.G CloudFlare(R) Cache Purge knows you are using Page Rules by querying the Cloudflare API, and reads the pattern match. Then goes a step further, based on the pattern match, whether a new post or updating a post; purges related assets. This could be the comment RSS or post RSS .xml feeds as an example.
