I'm sure a Next/Gatsby/Nuxt site would take even longer!

I was looking at Gridsome as an alternative, I've given Nuxt & Vue a spin in the recent past. But the simplicity of Hugo, and the fact that Hui Jing had a nifty migration guide/gotchas, those were the main factors for going Hugo.

Gatsby is slower than Hugo. But latest Gatsby version can build faster with incremental build feature.

That's interesting, I've seen an incremental mode on Hugo as well, but I don't think I turned that on in Netlify.

I didn't do a deep build speed research when I chose the static site generator, but that's just because most things out there are faster than Jekyll 3.x. And Github Pages wasn't going to support Jekyll 4.

What's your setting to implement Hugo incremental build?

It's more of a cache than an incremental build. Changing my partials to use partialCached instead decreased build time from 20 something seconds to 15.
