I’m curious if any of the other folks out there using msvc and rust have found builds to be almost insanely slow.
With the same laptop running linux, the builds weren’t anything unusual.
Since I’m relatively new to doing any kind of daily dev work on Windows I was wondering if this wasn’t perhaps an obvious tool configuration problem that the uninitiated stumble upon.
My general workflow is to run cmder, initialize the environment with vcvarsall (which takes an insane amount of time in it’s own right), then run emacs from that shell. I start my builds using cargo with projectile.
I’m generally comfortable and happy with all of this workflow, but if I could improve the build/link times it would be a major QoL improvement.
I’m using Windows 10 and VS 14. I’ve just started using rustup instead of the official installer, but either perform the same. The version of rustc is 1.8.0-msvc.
