next Question: How to avoid long build times
Currently my custom reaction build takes about 30 minutes when building with a virtualbox docker-machine.
While watching the clock and looking at the logs the build seems to spend 20 minutes working through packages with npm dependencies:
reactioncommerce:reaction-logger: updating npm dependencies -- bunyan,
reactioncommerce:core: updating npm dependencies -- node-geocoder,
lodash.merge, lodash.uniqwith, jquery.payment, autosize, tether, draggabilly,
reactioncommerce:reaction-ui: updating npm dependencies -- classnames,
sortablejs, postcss, postcss-js, autoprefixer, css-annotation, tether-drop,
tether-tooltip, react-textarea-autosize, react-color, autonumeric,
accounting-js, jquery, jquery-ui...
@jeremy you mentioned once that you spin up a high-powered DO or AWS instance when you are running lots of builds. Would you recommend that approach for building Reaction?
I guess that would free up my machines memory/cpu and lessen the need to sit by and wait out the build. Thanks in advance!
