Keeping repl permanently alive.

conspicous
conspicous

So I have been making a repl that allows you to store items online but every time, after a certain amount of time, it shuts down the express server (nodejs) and it loses all data except users that have registered. Can someone help me to keep it online (eg. An example that works)?

Thanks in advance.

Note: the server is based off lolisafe and the script is at lolisafe.js.

Edit: db is not an option and uptime robot lasts 2 months.

If you can force the repl to crash using kill 1 when the repl crashes, then using the url ping.mat1.repl.co/__tail should turn the repl back on. Just have the repl run "kill 1" on exit, e.g. have a bash script that looks like this:
node main.js >> main.log
kill 1

could pinging the site for a long time cause it to crash or be shut down by repl.it?

Seems that the website is not active often, leading to errors occasionally. You could try freshping.

(HOW is this post still alive!)

Nonetheless, save a few hours toward the beginning of the day and evening for continuous work. What's more, however telecommute is about adaptability, attempt to begin and complete (!) your day on time too.Setting cutoff times for message answers and following your group's movement is OK; actually, mind the management level. Individuals aren't robots to sit before the screens for 8 hours and reply in practically no time, however you can here and there require prompt answers. Indeed, if so – simply call, don't message. Also, attempt to try not to be excessively official at calls – side remarks and jokes assist with making the air less tense.Working from home requires a progress to computerized reality from each business cycle player.

Does hooking the exit event and running language specific equivalents (eg Javascript's process.exit(1)) in the main code also work to this same effect?
