Kindly share your hacks to enhance Developer Experience & Productivity

Aah, I was not able to pick suitable topic title, but community will be glad, if you share your Productivity hacks while developing with Frappe & ERPNext.

PS: I wrote this post to alarm Devs, as I’m concerned of build time increasing rapidly.

Are you guys okay with Bench Build building time? Should I concerned about this? Average build time is 177.31s, ~3 minutes!!

I know, Developer should get some time to grab a cup of coffee, what if you are constantly hitting bench commands one after another?

My colleagues have already complained so many times, concerning empty coffee-machine, & boss is about to fire me to save their 2 loss, one is coffee & another is time.

Jokes apart, Anyone is working on enhancing Developer Experience?

PS: This thread may also be used, to speak up all your dev challenges, so we can grab a list, few of them may be fixed with upcoming major release!

Recently GitHub - frappe/frappe_docker: Docker images for production and development setups of the Frappe framework and ERPNext was update to be not only finally production-ready but it includes VSCode container remote integration, check frappe_docker/ at main · frappe/frappe_docker · GitHub

I am always very slow with developing for frappe, my main issue is lack and quality of documentation
