So I’ve seen a few related issues, but they’re all closed so I couldn’t ask for information there.
I’m running circleci against a monorepo, and debugging the build on my local machine (OSX 10.13.4, circleci --version 0.0.5132-8289ad4)
And the “Checkout code” step is painfully slow (up to 10 minutes). When I run
git clean -xdf first, the build is < 1 minute. I would guess that the checkout code step locally does not respect the .gitignore files, and there is some inefficiency in passing the many, many files in the node_modules folders in my project.
Is this a bug or a feature of the local circleci build tool?
