I am basically having the exact same issue as described in this thread: https://github.com/middleman/middleman/issues/1118
My middleman server is running on my Mac laptop. That laptop is accessible from other computers on the network. When I try to access the middleman site through other computers I get a solid 15 - 20 second delay. After the initial delay, subsequent requests are pretty snappy but if not accessed for a few minutes I get the delay again.
The thread basically says to use the
:DoNotReverseLookup option for webrick but I notice that that already seems to be specified by middleman: https://github.com/middleman/middleman/blob/master/middleman-core/lib/middleman-core/preview_server.rb
Does anyone else have this problem?
Am I correct that the DoNotReverseLookup option is already in effect for middleman v4?
In a related thread someone said adding the IP of the network computer to the hosts file of the computer running the middleman server could work: http://stackoverflow.com/a/7048085
Anyone tried this? I'm not sure off hand how to achieve that.
