Are there ways to optimize the reload time of figwheel / figwheel-main?


Seems to take anywhere between a second and 4 seconds for my app to discover a difference and load it. I wonder if it could be faster.


You're usually constrained by compile tones of a transitive namespace


I’ll try different tones, perhaps something a bit darker 🙂


But in all seriousness, yeah, I bet the main problem is all the dependencies/requires


That’s what you were referring to, right?


Yeah *times and sheer size. I had a 1kloc namespace on a project, that I found the day I decided to investigate reload times


Did you manage to shave real time off?


Hm, that sounded like a lot, but actually there are probably a few ns’es like that on this project. I think they’re trunks though, not leaves, in the require-graphs.


In my case it was essentially a utility namespace. There wasn't a win quick enough relative to the time I had left on the project so I left it. No point breaking things for people!


Sounds like the right choice. I find that usually, util namespaces are not that difficult to break up into smaller namespaces, so performing the refactoring itself is not that costly or error fraught; however, if the depending ns’es end up requiring most of the util ns’es anyway, the performance gain might not even be palpable.


Has anybody attempted a figwheel-main + deps + webpack + test combination yet? I have figwheel-main + deps + webpack working in my project, but am struggling to configure a test environment, and could do with a minimal working example or some docs for reference.
