Exploiting -j takes a little attention to detail in the makefiles and overall structure, recursion can constrain parallelism; but they are not inherently mutually exclusive.
@gorsat is it worth making VS Code to build in the cloud, instead of local? I’m not sure if that is even an option, but maybe it speeds up the things for you?
I’ll be doing both cloud and local. Really expected that local builds would be faster, though.
since you are using Win 10, maybe you can take advantage of the Windows subsystem for Linux to speed up things?
It risks being a bit involved though…
Just started compiling local using VS Code and my first local compile for Xenon using the 1.3.0 firmware is taking 5+ mins and waiting. Looks like this is normal for the first run?
@RWB a full app and DeviceOS build (after a clean) on my Win10 i7 laptop w/SSD takes between 10 and 15 mins!
Yep, that’s what I’m seeing on a MacBook Pro also. I was sure something was frozen until I came across this post. Guess there is a lot going on in the background on the first build.
