I am working on my first big project with Apostrophe and I am following the tutorials and documentation as I go. I dig what I’ve been seeing. The one thing that keeps me from feeling productive is how slow it is to reboot Apostrophe.
Whenever I make a change to a template or some LESS, I need to reboot the whole server to see the change and this it takes about 30 seconds each and every time. I know about the
nodemon module, and have used it, but it still feels like it takes way too long for me to see a change in my code appear in a browser.
Maybe I am missing something fundamental here, but this part of the dev experience is rather bothersome.
I have taken to designing what I can elsewhere using quicker tools then converting them to into the Apostrophe templates required, but this feels a bit wrong somehow, plus once I get things wired up I still have to debug and every change still takes about 30 seconds.
What is your workflow when developing sites using Apostrophe? Does everybody just deal with the compile time? Is my machine to blame? Am I just being impatient?
