Hello @depressed_chip

It’s cool to hear that you’re moving to Glitch!’

When a project does not get any requests it will forcefully be shutdown, what I’m meaning to say is, if you don’t have e.g. a server listening for requests and responding with 200 or something then it will be shutdown, your server needs to be requested at least per 5-10 minutes. That action can be done by using uptimerobot.

Creating a server can be done with this single line in the top of your code.

require("http").createServer(async (req,res) => { res.statusCode = 200; res.write("ok"); res.end(); }).listen(3000, () => console.log("Now listening on port 3000"));

Can you share me the post??


Glitch no longer allows UptimeRobot or any pinging service for that matter. The best way to keep your glitch project alive is to upgrade to a boosted plan. There is still a workaround, which if you’d like please message me.

you know i read this right lol
