Seed will now automatically cache the dependencies for Node.js projects. This should help make your builds faster!

Seed restoring cache build log

The node_modules directory will be automatically cached on a per-stage basis. You can read about this in detail over on our docs. If you would like support for other runtimes, feel free to contact us.

Here is a quick estimate of how much faster your builds can get:

  • For medium sized projects, it could shave nearly 15 - 20 seconds of your builds.
  • While for some larger size projects, could see a speed up nearly 40 - 60 seconds.

The dependency cache is currently being rolled out to all the development environments for apps on Seed. And it will be turned on for all environments a week from now.
