Our site uwalumni.netlify.app is a Gatsby+WordPress site that I’m trying to port over from Gatsby Cloud before our account is shut down on 10/11. I’ve ported over our smaller sites, but this one has 5600 pages and 4700 images.
Build times on Gatsby Cloud were regularly at or over 60 minutes.
I have been working on converting to use Gatsby Image CDN, which scares me because the documentation is scattered and out of date and does not instill confidence that this will be a solid solution. But I don’t see any other options. I have managed to get the build times down to right around 30 minutes, even slightly under, but so far they have all failed saying they did not build in the allotted time.
I think to be safe and realistic we need our build limit bumped up to 60 minutes for this site. I’m going to keep trying to bring it down, but unless I find some great new tricks, it’s not going to regularly build in under 30 minutes.
