I’m currently working on a plugin for Scala.js, in collaboration with the main developer.
One of the build stage uses a linker and a cache, and he told me that they are incremental (~100x speedup after some builds), but it is only possible if they are kept alive across builds obviously.
SBT allows an object/value to be evaluated/stored only once at its startup (or when explicitely asked to change / reload), which means that the linker and cache can be then retrieved for each build, enabling this huge speedup.
I thought there was perhaps a way to give an object to the Gradle daemon (it wouldn’t work without one I guess) to be stored and retrieved later, but I haven’t find a way to do this.
So, I’m trying to create something like a global variable outside the builds, for a Gradle daemon (I guess). Anybody has an idea how to do it?
Sorry for my bad english, I hope I was clear enough, and thanks in advance!
