PowerCoder (690)

I want to do some cleanup actions before NodeJS exits. I've tried to do all of the exit event handlers but they don't seem to work.

Why not configure you run button instead smh

# .replit
node .
# ok now the process has exited so you can do something like:
echo program stopped have a great day bye

@Coder100 I want something that automatically runs Node.js when the process exits.

Coder100 (10843)

yeah that automatically runs @PowerCoder

you can make it do like:

node .
node finished
// finished
console.log("Program stopped");

// add code
