Pipelines: cache custom node_modules folder

Do I understand correctly that pre-defined `node` cache only works when node_modules and package.json are located in the root directory of a project? Then how do I configure bitbucket-pipelines.yml to make cache work with node_modules folder located in subfolder (./public/node_modules/)?

Managed to solve it



- step
- node-custom
- if [ ! -d "node_modules" ]; then npm install; fi

node-custom: public/node_modules

Will that not cause problems if package.json is updated as the node_modules won't be re-generated once cached?

It will. You need to manually delete your cached dependencies using the UI.

There sure must be a way how to delete it automatically when package-lock.json changes?

@Petr Pelleractually, you don't need that line:

- if [ ! -d "node_modules" ]; then npm install; fi

Because the npm knows when to install/remove packages, I just changed this line by simply:

- npm install

And it works fine for me.
