When running scripts such as gulp or anything else through npm run, it takes a long time to start running the script.
For example, gulp tasks often take 5 to 10 seconds to output something like “Finished task after 10ms”.
I don’t think this is really an issue with gulp.
I assume it is to do with initializing the code for node and so grows with larger code bases.
What can be done about this?
Potential ideas(caching, server-like script that is always in memory)
- This may be something more specific to node, but I would like to achieve this through npm run.
