I’m currently in the situation where I’m in
dev mode for a package
X and actively making changes to its source. But this makes a package
Y which depends on
X have very long precompilation times every time I have to quit and restart my session (e.g. when I restart my computer; normally I’m using
Revise and only have to suffer precompilation every time I begin a session, but that’s still a pain since precompilation takes a loooong time).
Since I’m constantly making changes to
X, this seems to basically nullify the point of precompilation: what’s the nicest way to disable precompilation of
Y in such a case? Do I need to edit its source, is there a way to do this purely through a setting in the package manager (it would need to be a package-specific disabling of precompilation), etc.?
