I just tried to give writing kibana plugins a try.
AFter every change I have to wait > 100s for the optimization finishes.
I'm running it on my local laptop (~2y.o, 2,7GHZ core, 16BG RAM, SSD), using Windows (the setup was time consuming and may be the problem. I might just use a linux VM...)
The plugin itself is the one Tim Roes writes in his "Writing Kibana 4 Plugins" blog post.
Is there any way to make it faster?
