Sage 9 is slow as hell

Sage 9 is slow as hell (build:production takes about 550 sec to finish :frowning: ) and I have no idea what I am doing wrong. On top of this I just got a Fatal Error, copied below:

What the hell am I doing wrong? I uploaded the content of the sage folder here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1l7aFtQak4dxBoqjx25Q4XnjtGPW2e0Go/view?usp=sharing

The first thing I’d look at is your main.scss and how you’re managing to generate a 10.5MB CSS file - that likely accounts for the slow processing and memory issues. It has to generate a sourcemap too and that is almost 40MB!

How did you get to this point? Have you added all these imports manually to your main.scss and if so, do you really need them all?

I also noticed you have a yarn-error.log file present and at the end of the file it has a message about not being able to CHMOD so maybe you have some deeper permissions problems with your system setup.

Did you have errors when you first ran yarn?

I might be (over)using @extends? What do you recommend instead of that with Bulma?


#4

I don’t use Bulma and SASS is not my primary choice of pre-processor so I might not be the best one to answer that but I think you need to be careful using @extend:

If you examine the resulting code in main.css you will see it is quite scary and the majority of the file is giant lists of selectors (I counted more than 8000 lines in one block and that was just to set one or two CSS properties - not only is it a problem for file size but probably also for the browser having to parse all these selectors).

I can’t say for sure without digging deeper but it looks like you have some major issues with your CSS structure and the use of @extend. You could try looking at the processed file and see if you can figure out where most of the problems stem from based on the properties that are being set.


#5

Thank you for your help! I started commmenting out the lines from main.scss, so I can find the file where the issue is. I have to rewrite to not use extends, that is the issue definitely (long selector list, etc.).


#6

You’re welcome :slight_smile: I hope you are able to find a solution without rewriting everything!

Ok, it gets more interesting. I left this content in my main.scss, so basically everything is commented out:

Yet now yarn run build:production ran for 244.40s. Is that normal? :astonished:
The file main_86c45dd5.css is 0 byte in dist/ .


#8

Does this happen on a fresh copy of Sage? If you follow these instructions and simply run a yarn build:production does it still take this long? If so, the problem is probably not with Sage.


#9

I ran the same process with your code and it took a similar amount of time. A quick look at the Activity Monitor showed me what was going on: optipng goes crazy trying to optimise your huge 2.7MB image in images/body_bg.png. PNG optimisation is a heavy process and in my opinion, PNG is the wrong format for this image. I’d remove the PNG and keep the JPG version.

For reference: after removing the PNG image and re-running yarn build:production, it took about 5.5s total. All your Sage install needed was to go on a diet :wink:


#10

Jeez, I should start focusing (instead of stressing on deadline is coming)… :smiley:

Thanks Stephen, that solved the mystery - I forgot to delete it after I changed to .jpg (yeah, .png is totally wrong for this image). I think I liked better the way gulp handled these things: it printed the work currently in progress, so it was easier to debug.


#11

No worries - I’m just glad we could figure it out in the end :slight_smile:

I’m still getting used to Webpack too after Gulp… It’s an adjustment but hopefully it will be worth the effort in the long run.

Good luck with your deadlines!


#12

Thanks and thanks again for your help! :slight_smile:
