using a (kind of) source based distribution (eg. Guix or 9front) really makes you appreciate simple software and fast compilers
did you know that chromium takes frickin forever to build? i just gave up because i ain't got no patience for that.
right now i'm waiting for Krita to build but that too is taking its sweet time.... but at least I like Krita
> [my #rust program] built fast until I added… dependencies. Now, every time I build my app for release, rust has to build diesel and dotenv as well, even though nothing changed to those.
Well, it doesn't *literally* start from scratch—if you run `cargo clean` before `cargo build --release`, it would be even slower.
But, for release builds, you *want* to rebuild dependencies because available optimizations may have changed based on your code
@aeveltstra It should already do that. Cargo has a build cache and won't rebuild things that didn't change. Are you using something like Docker that could be throwing away the cache each time?
@kornel Good question! I'm not using Docker since the build is happening on my phone. But that phone might be preventing rust from writing build cache. I'll check it out.
