What is the current behavior?
Partial builds are slow in Webpack 3 compared to Webpack 2
If the current behavior is a bug, please provide the steps to reproduce.
I just upgraded webpack in my project (based on vue-webpack template) from v2.6.1 to the latest v3.2.0. The partial build time became much slower, from previous ~1.7 sec it’s now ~5.5 sec. Initial builds are same ~55 sec.
Also tried to upgrade webpack-dev-middleware from ^1.10.0 to ^1.11.0 and webpack-hot-middleware from ^2.18.0 to ^2.18.2. Didn’t help.
Please mention other relevant information such as the browser version, Node.js version, webpack version and Operating System.
Node 8.0.0, yarn 0.24.5, macOS Sierra, package.json, no SSR enabled
