Running a basic Titanium app, without a full rebuild, on iOS is about twice as fast with the old CLI as it is with the new CLI. On my machine, old CLI builds would take about 3-8 seconds. The new CLI builds take about 10-15 seconds. Obviously these times will vary based on your machine's capabilities.
This only appears to affect iOS builds as I believe Android builds are still deferring to the old python system.
Execute steps 2-5 for both TiSDKs 3.0.0.GA and 2.1.4.GA.
- Create a new Titanium project (default 2-tabbed is fine)
- build it once for iphone simulator
- Make a small code change and build it again
- Repeat step 3 a couple times to get an average of times
The average of the 2.1.4.GA times should be significantly lower than those of the 3.0.0.GA SDK. Be sure these are not full rebuilds when getting an average.
