Caching Gem installs to reduce build times

Installing your Gems can take quite some time.

To save time on consecutive builds CloudCannon does the following:

  1. Installs your gems to a local folder
  2. Caches that folder based on your Gemfile.lock
  3. When no local gems are found, CloudCannon will build your site using the cached installs from your previous build

To disable this feature, go to Site Settings / Build.

Note

Older Jekyll sites on CloudCannon will have this caching disabled to prevent changes to their build environment. Enabling this can greatly improve editing experience.
