Can i update cache?

I use a custom cache due to single-repo layout, with client and server in different folders. It did not seem the node cache worked for me this way.

I needed to do a cache to run npm install in one step, and npm test in another step, otherwise the node_modules did not seem to exist.

However, if i update the modules, say, add a dependency or update version of one, the cache does not seem to be updated by this in my npm install step? 

Is this intended, or can i make my cache be updated if it detects a difference? Or is it simply better to use install and test in the same step, and then cache that? I guess i would get the latest version that way, but cache it for faster install times.

Hi Emil,

In regards to the last part of your question, the caches only update approximately every 7 days. There is a feature request to get them to update when there is a difference detected here: it's not a priority at the moment, but if you vote for it and watch it you can see if that status changes.

Sorry that I don't have better news!
