we are using Docker on macOS for development and deployment and have massive performance problems especially in deployment.
Our deployment does a full project build with:
- git clone
- composer install
- bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy en_US de_DE --exclude-theme Magento/blank --exclude-theme Magento/luma --force (take 3000 secs!!!!)
- bin/magento setup:di:compile (take ~1000secs!!!!)
Does anyone know why these processes took that much time?
Now we are using docker-sync which "works", but adds an extra layer of complexity to all our M" projects which I want to avoid.
It's such a shame for Magento that it does not optimize for development workflow. All other projects like Laravel, Symfony, TYPO3, Drupal etc works like a charm but M2 sucks in performance caused by the count of files which needs to be read in a request lifecycle.
