The most time-consuming step in my CircleCI 1.0 builds is installing TeXLive (I need texlive-latex-extra and texlive-fonts-extra). I can cache the download files but installing still takes several minutes.
I don’t know Docker, so I wonder: with CircleCI 2.0 using all those docker images for e.g. Selenium, should it be possible to just use a ready-made Docker image with TeXLive installed (there is a bunch of them on hub.docker.com) in addition to my Python+Postgres+Selenium, and have i.e. pdflatex available?
If you tell me that’s how it should be done, then I’ll look into it.
