10. Enable Gatsby incremental builds in Netlify
This note is about enabling the incremental builds feature released by Gatsby team couple of months back in Netlify.
I followed this article and below are the steps I did:
1. Enable the plugin
Created a new file
netlify.toml in root and added following content to it.
[[plugins]] package = "netlify-plugin-gatsby-cache"
This enables the said plugin in the build process in Netlify.
2. Add flag
Added the following flag to the build command in package.json
"build": "GATSBY_EXPERIMENTAL_PAGE_BUILD_ON_DATA_CHANGES=true gatsby build --log-pages"
> Issue 1
It didn't work, So i updated the build command on Netlify website
> Issue 2
then I found below in the logs
Its a known issue that the plugin doesn't work for preview deploys, at the time of writing this note.
(GitHub Issue: https://github.com/jlengstorf/netlify-plugin-gatsby-cache/issues/22)
But on production deploys, the plugin seems to find the cache perfectly fine.
We'll see how today's configuration unfolds with future builds.
Till next time! ✌️
