Question: the script got be ruining all the time in order for this to work right? So if I turn off my PC, it's gone. Or is it written to the OS crontab?

You can use a package manager like pm2 to run it forever in background.

Good question! But yes if you turn your machine off the cron job will stop. I’ll have a look if I can find an npm package that actually writes to the crontab.
