NextJS build cache?

I’m building a NextJS app and it takes ~6min to build entire thing, including almost 2 min to reinstall the old dependencies even when the yarn.lock hasn’t changed.

Is there a way to specify that I want to cache dependencies (e.g. node_modules and .next/cacheAdvanced Features: CI Build Caching | Next.js)?


There are no built-in ways to cache specific folders on Render. Though if you want us to investigate your service build time, please reach out via the “Contact Support” form in your dashboard.
