I am new to SF (having built MVC apps in the past). I am wondering if my slow SF development speed is typical. I am working with a Feather MVC project and SF 8.0. My time from start to page view is ~ 75 seconds. I feel like that is too long to be productive. I have disabled unused modules and I am rendering temp asp.net files to RamDisk (although I already have an i7 processor with an SSD disk).
How are people building SF solutions that don't involve long compile/start times? There are so many options for customizing SF I might be taking the wrong approach.
...it's pretty brutal to be productive you are right, you just have to live with it :/
Precompilation tool doesn't work for MVC (although it speeds up the backend quite a bit)
Feather has been a lifesaver with the ability to just quickly change a view to see changes...
Couple other tips...
1) Run the site in IIS not localhost
2) In your task manager\details find the w3wp process, right-click, set it to high priority
