Caching in the local environment


I’m working on a build that requires some net traffic & general crunching, which can be safely cached away. This looks great on the build server, but I’m seeing some test errors that I need to debug.

I would like to run circleci build on each file change, but without local caching I’m generating a lot of load that I would rather not burden services with, and wait time that I’d rather avoid.

Is there any interest / ETA in getting caching into the local environment? This would really help me use the service. I would happily take something basic, like throwing tars into /tmp/circleci/{key}.

I had a quick look, but I couldn’t find the CLI in github; I would have taken a look at opening a PR :slight_smile:
