docpad install winston
This plugin will replace the default Caterpillar logger in DocPad for Winston.
As DocPad has matured, there has been a noticable increase in build times for larger sites. Replacing Caterpillar with Winston has resulted in faster builds for DocPad versions >= 6.32.0
Note that this can be seen as a temporary drop-in solution to the issue, where diagnosing Caterpillar performance issues will be more ideal.
