[Pro] Understanding Builds

I work, build upload and test many times a day. The build time is extraordinarily long and I would like to shorten it.

— I assume that “Publishing” before an “Upload” does no good. The entire thing seems to be being rebuilt on upload initiation.

— I have some rather large images that get processed each time. What is faster: passthrough or not?

Thank you

Maybe a question to ask should be: Do I need these image files to be so large?

Is it your ‘build’ that takes the time or the upload.

If the latter do you need to upload so often?

Dave, Thanks for the response. I still would like to know this…

– I have some rather large images that get processed each time. What is faster: passthrough or not?

Which is?

Yes.

Is it your ‘build’ that takes the time or the upload.

The build, more precisely the command P “Publish” when I preview locally and the automatic publish when I preview on the server.

If the latter do you need to upload so often?

yes.

How long is “long”?

Could you just preview the “single” page you are working on “within
Freeway” rather than publish the whole site to preview?

Thank you David,

All I want to do is minimize the time of the publish cycle.

Perhaps I should ask the question again.

I have a site I am building that involves many people all over the world. There are many pages, images and details that they need to test and approve. That means that often a day will involve a dozen upload cycles. I do not mind this. My upload speed is fast.

This project will last for a month at least. If there are techniques to shorten the publish time, I would like to know them. It isn’t how long that time is at the moment that is the issue, because I have only one fiftieth or so of the images published. Every section is likely to use a different technique, and I really am dreading a fifty times longer wait twelve times a day.

So…

can anyone tell me whether importing as pass-through increases or decreases the publish time?

Thank you.

If you pass through the graphics you will have to spend extra time cropping and configuring them to size and resolution prior to passing through.

Are you finding that the whole site is publishing or just the pages you ‘dirty’ by editing them?

Yes, but that is only once.

I am finding that if I make a trivial change one page, that page by itself is rebuilt PLUS all the huge images on other pages even though those pages have not been touched. Hence the desire to have those images be built once after the page is authored.

Thank you for the attention.

Right I see, I would…

(1) Resample all the images in your site using Edit > Resources > Sample All

(2) Then you could try deleting everything out of your published site folder and command p to re-publishing the whole site again afresh. That can jog Freeway into only publishing the pages you edit.
