I created an express app that listens to an SSE stream and forwards events, so it needs to be running 24/7. Since Glitch servers go to sleep after 5 minutes, I created a Pipedream workflow to ping my server every minute to keep it awake. I’m sharing it here in case anyone else finds it useful – just copy the workflow, add your server endpoint and deploy (I created a custom route in my Glitch server at
/wakeup to catch these requests). The workflow code runs on Pipedream’s servers.
Let me know if you have any feedback!
