Why is the development environment so heavy?

I recently built a development environment based on the following link to get involved in RocketChat development.

I have 8GB RAM on my Mac, but it is still very slow.

It is light enough to launch a deployed version using Docker, but why is the development environment so heavy?
Is there some .env file or other setting?


The development version indeed requires a lot of resources, as it’s a huge codebase and it compiles/transpiles part of it on each change.

A nice tip is to run yarn dsv instead of yarn dev so it will not watch all componentes for reloading.

Let me know if this helps. Thanks!
