Pause collection regeneration after initial serve

Hey all,

I’m always using the --watch parameter while working and I have a very heavy duty collection comprised of hundreds of car detail pages that is taking around 20s to generate after each save on the project.

Is there a way to only generate a specific collection just once on the first serve and then pause its regeneration?

I need to continue working on other parts of the website without losing those pages but not continuously watch that collection so it doesn’t take forever. Excluding it with the exclude list inside the _config.yml doesn’t work because it won’t allow it to generate at all and I need to at least do it once.

did you try it with the experimental incremental flag?

You’re a lifesaver, thank you very much!
