When I type
gulp into the command line (OS X), it takes a good 80 seconds before any further output happens.
I even made a lighter version of the gulp task, which just does scripts and styles, called
gulp dev but that has the same very long pause before starting.
Is this a known issue? I haven’t made any other customisations to Sage.
Are you using virtual machines (such as Vagrant or Trellis)?
No, I’m just running it locally on my Mac.
From your theme root run:
npm install --save-dev time-require
Then require it from the top of your gulpfile:
var timeRequire = require('time-require');
That will give you a breakdown of where the time is being lost and should point you in the right direction.
I’m also assuming you’ve updated all the dependencies, removed and reinstalled etc.
