Maintenance

Some actions from you like creating a project will automatically trigger maintenances. They take care of a lot of things to keep your productive.

What is it doing

Some operations are automatically run during a maintenance:

  • dependencies install (in case package-lock.json or yarn.lock has changed)
  • app migrations are checked and applied if necessary (this can result in modified project code or new dependencies installed)
  • fragments necessary for environment and database migrations such as config.js and context.js are built, which allow plugins and you to use the config and the context in them
  • environment migrations are checked and applied if necessary
  • database migrations are checked and applied if necessary

In case at least one app migration is applied during the maintenance, the code state will be saved before and after applying the migrations with Git commits.

When is it run

Maintenances are automatically run when:

  • The project is created.
  • A plugin is added, upgraded or removed.
  • A service command is executed (you can skip this by setting the NODEPACK_NO_MAINTENANCE env variable to true).
