I'm creating a file that requires huge libraries such as jquery and three.js using browserify. The compiling process takes several seconds, probably because it's recompiling all the libs for each minor change I make. Is there a way to speed it up?
Have you tried using the
--fast flags? (they're all the same thing)
The reason it's slow may be that it's scanning all of jquery and d3 for
I just remembered: Browserify will take any pre-existing require functions and fall back to using that. more info here
This means you could build a bundle for your static libs, and then only rebuild the bundle for your app code on change.
This coupled with my pre-edit answer should make it a lot faster.
