When working with custom plugins, is there a way to start kibana (./bin/kibaba) without the "optimize" step. This step takes a long time and severely slows down development.
There isn't a way to do it without optimizing, but running kibana in development mode should be significantly quicker. Incremental builds, no minification, etc. The first run will be longer and it should be less than 5 seconds per build after that. It watches files for changes on save.
bin/kibana --dev, or
npm start. This requires a clone of the repository, https://github.com/elastic/kibana/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md has more info.
