I can't glean this from looking at the code, but are you recompiling the
entire program? Web development is a perfect fit for incremental
compilation, so when changing one web page's template or view code, you
should need to compile only one .d file.
ld and gold seem to support incremental linking, that could help speed
things up as well.
Dub automatically handles caching of dependencies such as vibe-d. So
they are not rebuilt.
The only things that get recompiled for example is a single code unit.
This is defined as being the dependency between a route file and
template files (simplified).
The necessary dependencies such as vibe-d then should be added as part
of the build process.
Incremental builds of things such as routes and templates are not a good
idea. Same goes for data models. It could change the code unit output a
little too much. Possibly even cause a corrupt binary from missing
But in this case none of this matters much. Pretty much I'm only testing
against a single route module. No dependencies outside phobos and vibe-d.
