Optimized site generation to be 70% faster

Miguel Piedrafita @m1guelpf

Sitesauce relies on a generator component that actually does the work of converting your dynamic website into a static site.

Until now, Sitesauce ran the generator on the server, then compressed the output and uploaded it to Zeit or Netlify. Yesterday, I experimented with running the generator directly on the Zeit build process, getting rid of two build steps and making the process 70% faster.
