Our App takes 1 minute to build on overclocked High end PC, it's not a tragedy, but could be better.
Our application is packed with tons of resources. Everything is in one project, linked shared files. Most of the time is spent in AAPT, even when there is only a small c# code change.
How to prevent long resource build? We tried to move resources into separate project, but it didn't really helped. Without any benefit we tried to build resources project and reference it not as a project but as a compiled assembly only. No luck.
When I tried setting AndroidExplicitCrunch on project, it didn't build, when I tried it on solution with separate resource project on resource project, it helped - 1-2 secs only.
We are using Android support libraries.
Is there any way how we can speed up build? How to set not to process all of the resources every build?
