i am looking for any docs, readmes, advice on how best to build this on a Mac minimising dock use and improving build performance.
Got a few resources for you:
The main document you’ll want to follow
macOS dev env tips
Important one here is to turn off indexing, so all the object files/outputs don’t get indexed by OS
Chromium (upstream) setup for macOS
This can be great for speeding up builds; the doc we have is specific to us but I’d recommend checking it out and setting it up
Hope this helps!
many thanks Brian. The sccache is very useful… i wasnt aware of just how much disk space is needed and how long a build takes. I found the other links, but i think i will also take more time to view the github wiki. I am kinda impatient and tend to jump straight in… i will never learn but it is good to get to grips with such a meaty project.
