Why you might hibernate an app and how to do it.
While using Databutton you might have cases where you no longer need an app but you don’t want to lose its code or you want to limit your app’s usage level. To accomplish either of these tasks, hibernating your app/s might be an attractive feature for you to make use of.
Functionally, hibernating an app essentially puts it on “pause”—you won’t lose any of your code. While your app is hibernating, all of its services will be shut down (i.e. your jobs won’t run). Your hibernating app also won’t create costs while it is in this state. However, you won’t be able to view its code until you wake it up again.
Below are instructions on how you can hibernate (two ways) and wake up (one way) your app/s.
