I have a GitHub Page that used to take a few minutes to build, but then after this Pull Request adding just a few files, the build time has ballooned. Locally it now takes an hour to build, and on GitHub… well, it just times out.
Any ideas why this straw broke the camel’s back? Did I do something wrong?
I guess this can be a note to the dev team, in case this performance problem hasn’t been addressed yet (I realize GitHub Pages’ Jekyll version is a bit behind master) or in case some future GitHub Pages user runs into this issue, perhaps Google will point them here Cheers everyone
I also experienced this myself. I use frontmatter values explicitly in files to avoid a glob.
In my case I needed to do **/index.md to match zero or more folders. If you use a more precise rule like /foo/*/index.md you might be okay. Where a single star means one directly level. And it is narrowed to in foo rather than all top level directories.
