:shobson Is this still an issue?
Yes. Just tried it and it took 45 seconds.
This is exactly the problem I have right now. foreman start doesn't work for me because it times out and thus restarts the gunicorn process so the page never gets served. I have to run "./manage.py runserver" or "gunicorn ..." by hand outside of foreman. If I change django-pipeline so that PIPELINE_ENABLED = True, then it renders in under a second.
My bad--I misunderstood this. I didn't realize stylus files were being generated outside of django-pipeline. Disregard my comment #3.
