Incremental Builds #

Incremental builds perform a partial build operating only on files that have changed to improve build times when doing local development.

Incremental builds via the command line flag --incremental have been available without much fanfare in Eleventy for a few versions now. Let’s check in on what the current capabilities of incremental builds are and the plans to improve:

Passthrough Copy #

Configuration File #

If you create/update your Eleventy configuration file, a full build will run.

Templates #

🗓 To Do #

Templates #

Smarter Template Language Support #

Cold Start #

Currently incremental does a full build to start out to provide a fresh starting point to work from. Improvements will save the state of the build to a cache for faster cold starts. Issue #984
