A Jekyll performance trick
I discovered a performance trick for Jekyll.
As the blog was growing, I observed increasing times for re-generating the whole thing. You might remember Faster Jekyll, for example, where I already discussed about it.
My solution at the time was to have a faster and limited re-generation for looking at new posts quickly, while leaving the slower generation to a secondary process.
Then came Blog posts rearrangement, where I moved most of the posts into ad-hoc directories, while still leaving more than 3 hundred posts in the main directory, because it was november.
At the beginning of the year, I made a similar rearrangement to “archive” 2022, and I noted a considerable boost in site regeneration speed.
So, I guess, moving stuff in sub-directories and leaving fewer posts in the main directory will probably help. Good to know!
Stay safe and… have fun!
