Node_modules initialize every day

I have running a server in glitch. But everyday I face this message.

Initializing node_modules, hold on…
node v14.15.2, npm 6.14.9
Installing…

Is this a normal behavior??? Or it can be stopped. If it can be stopped, please let me know.
Thanks.

I have heard that glitch “restarts” your project container once in a while. That must mean it has to reinstall dependencies too. I think it’s normal.

You might be able to work around it by “vendoring” dependencies. It would eat into your project disk space quota though.
