Have Ember CLI build times been causing you grief
? Do you want to shave 20 seconds from your rebuilds?
has been experimenting with building on SSD vs RAM Disk
. He has seen up to 32x
speed improvements! Speedups were found when upgrading to a faster processor and using an SSD.
Upgrading RAM wasn't found to be helpful however the biggest gain was found by using a RAM disk
to hold the project folder which allowed 3x speed gains during builds. The drawback of this is that when the computer shuts down the RAM disk is wiped clean (so make sure you commit often!).Tobias Bieniek
chimed in that current efforts to integrate Broccoli 2 into Ember CLI are underway and that most platforms would get this speedup by default once the usually RAM Disk powered, system temporary folder instead of the current in-project
tmp folder is used due to the Broccoli update.
Look for this speedup soon in an Ember App near you! 💨
