Nodejs exit after time and files are getting reset
eliyah (1)

i have a nodejs repl that handles my chat program when i quit nodejs normally it saves the data to the file something like [DATA,DATA,DATA] but when the repl has run for a long time its quit (which i hope it dont do) and then it saves like only [] to the file i want the repl to stay awake longer and too SAVE THE FILES.

Here is the repl https://repl.it/@eliyah/chatti-Backup-Server and why it says backup is for my server before crashed (hosted on repl.it too) and i couldn't get it to start so a made a new repl with same code and same issue with saving. Note that I have get same issues with saving on other nodejs servers

@eliyah I just noticed that your repl is not an Express server, which would make it exit immediately after execution. Just copy the code from https://repl.it/languages/Express into your repl. Then it should work.
(Don't forget to change the monitor url to the repl.co link)
