How can I speedup ember-cli project creation

I timed the creation of a project using ember-cli and it took 5.48 min, this is really painful to sit through. Is there anything that can be done to substantially speed up this time?

I’m sure the ember-cli guys are doing what they can to make it fast but you could keep a clean ember-cli install on your machine and copy the folder using rsync, it’s faster for me at least.

rsync -avP clean-ember-cli-install/ new-project/

I came to the same solution. With this stop-gap method, you might from time to time update the modules with bower:

bower update -F -S
