I am building a iOS project with a coocoapods dependency manager. The “dependency” section default commands include a “Fetch CocoaPods specs S3” and takes around 3 minutes.
I had an idea of optimalisation which would caching the .cocoapods folder to avoid fetching it from a S3 server.
So, I added a following lines:
dependencies: override: cache_directories: - "~/.cocoapods"
But this lead to increased build time:
“Machine” section -> Restore cache -> 3 minutes
"Dependencies" section -> Fetch CocoaPods specs -> 3 minutes
"Database" section -> Save cache -> 4 minutes
- I have overrided the “dependencies” section, so why "Fetch CocoaPods specs is executed?
- I have cached .cocoapods folder with CocoaPods specs, so why the “Machine” section Restore cache takes so much time?
- Why the “Database” section takes so much time and if it’s possible to disable it once CocoaPods was cached.
