Is Bamboo caching the `node_modules` directory after `npm install`? Is it possible to have Bamboo cache `node_modules` across multiple builds?
This is what job configuration looks like:
If you specify a Node install task it will always reinstall the files.
If you do not clean the build directory before and after the job then you could use a ScriptTask instead. The below would only run the install if the node_module directory doesn't already exist.
[ ! -d "node_modules" ] && npm install
You would need to have an additional ScriptTask to perform any necessary cleaning.
