Xcode compile swift file repeatedly

(Zeng Sir) #1

Some swift source file has been compiled more than 50 times, every time take 599ms, so it takes 50 * 599ms.

Why is this? And how can I optimize it?

Here is some logs:

Through this tool (BuildTimeAnalyzer-for-Xcode), I got this result:

And I got the same result with Xcode build log file:

There should be another image, but I got the error "Sorry, new users can only put one image in a post." when submit. But it not affect anything.

I found a similar problem on stackoverflow, but I still didn't see the specific cause and solution.

I too have seen the Build Time Analyzer report that some files are compiled several times in certain projects. In my case it was always pure SwiftPM projects and the files were generally only compiled 5-10x (not 50).
