    It’s taking almost two seconds to completely regenerate all content on donmelton.com using Magneto. I need to speed that up.

      @donmelton wait, isn’t magneto an ecommerce engine?

        @dalton "Magento" (note the different spelling) is such.

          @donmelton ah, I stand corrected :) I was reminded of how @paulg still hosts his personal website on what is more or less the yahoo shops infrastructure

            @dalton @paulg The Yahoo infrastructure was quite good, from what I hear. I have an old friend who still works on that project after all these years and numerous management changes.

              @donmelton everything I have ever heard about it seems interesting http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RTML

                @sivy 42, the perfect number. :) BTW, that benchmark was on a MacBook Air. It's a healthier 1.2 seconds on my iMac. If I had to guess (and I'm often wrong), the bottleneck is likely kramdown.

                  @donmelton Oh good. I was worried it was something like my 2600+ posts, and if you were rendering that many in 2 seconds on a desktop I need to get out of this business.

                    @dalton Yeah, people forget that Yahoo actually knows how to do Web services. They also do decent JavaScript frameworks. Pity that they couldn't do an ad network worth a goddamn. :/

                      @sivy LOL! :) No, the overhead of firing up a Ruby interpreter and loading up the libraries is at least a half second anyway. The rest is likely just I/O and string processing. This is the curse of static site generation.

                        @donmelton Yup. I like #markboxapp’s approach. Static-like, backed by a lot of iron and fronted by a fast cache. :-)

                            @donmelton please develop a test which makes sure that you don’t regress the performance of your content generation system.

                              @rtmfd That is part of the plan. Along with creating some actual documentation for it.
