I’ve recently started using Cloudflare Pages to host a static site (I love it BTW).
There is one part of the build process which I just don’t understand though. It doesn’t really affect me, so I’m just more curious about it.
The “Initializing Build Environment” step takes about 2 minutes on each build, but there is nothing to build. I just need to clone a repo, and then deploy one of the folders as all the HTML/CSS/JS has been pre-generated.
I don’t know what happens during this phase, but if it were launching a docker container to prep the build, that should be pretty quick I would think. But, in my case, I don’t have any preset frameworks, or build commands. Based on that, I would think that any build setup other than setting up a Preview location would be unnecessary.
