I am new to the Digital Ocean Apps platform and I am having an issue related to when the instance begins building my Node application. The issue is related to previously cached
node_modules during the build process. I have added a few modules but builds via DO do not reflect these module changes, as DO continues to use a cached version of
node_modules (as seen in the logs, I believe related to Docker and Buildpack?). The
package-lock.json is checked in, but I am unsure if this would resolve the issue or not.
How do I clear this cache to ensure the DO environment does not use cached assets?

Looking at your app’s build logs, it seems to be using Yarn instead of NPM to install dependencies. If a
yarn.lockfile exists, App Platform will use Yarn, even if a
Make sure you commit the dependency updates to
yarn.lockor remove it entirely if you don’t need it. This will invalidate the existing cache and install the right dependencies. Let me know if that works!
