Recompiling all files


#1

When making the simplest change, one must compile the ENTIRE project and this is big waste of time.

For instance: I make a typo mistake in a single HTML file and correct the typo. When saving and recompiling, EXEOut looks/scans every file instead of just taking the file corrected.

This is very time consuming on a project with lots of html, php, js, css and images. Why not just recompile and add the last change made? Since EXEOut is mart enough to see I changed a file, surely this could be accomplished:)

The problem is that ExeOutput recreates the entire file archive when compiling. You should try the TEST mode so that there is no real compression. Then, EXE compilation will be really fast.
In ExeOutput 2018.2, we’ll also introduce a new compression method which is faster than the current one.


#3

Thanks! I will try the test mode out.


#4

Guess I do not know howto use the “Test Mode”. Check the box to activate it and popup dialog still shows compressing all the files, slow as ever.


#5

And do you see “Test mode enabled” in the compilation log?


#6

Yes, in red letters.

But the speed is same and popup shows compressing files.


#7

That’s not expected. In our tests, compilation is faster.
Anyway, we’ll look into a new way to create archives during compilation.
