Question

App Platform keeps using cached node_modules

Looks like node_modules is getting cached really hard. I’ve made big changes to my package.json and package-lock.json and they don’t reflect in my build.

For instance I changed the version of my package.json from 2.0.0 to 2.1.5 and when it builds, it’s still using 2.0.0 as well as the deps of the older package.json file.

Is there a way to manually clear the Apps node_modules cache?

App Platform reuses cached node_modules if the contents of package-lock.json or yarn.lock match the cached version.

Unfortunately there isn’t a way to clear the cache (we’re working on it!), but if this is still not working for you, one workaround would be to rename the component which will assign it a new empty cache.
