Laravel application deployments take ~10 minutes

I’m evaluating a switch to DigitalOcean’s app platform. However, deploying my application seems to take ~10 minutes. Is there any way to speed this up? My expectation is that a deployment should take 1-2 minutes; ~10 minutes will block me from using app platform.

We’re aware that some builds can take a long time—we’re actively working to improve build times. After the initial build of your application, dependencies will be cached and reused in future builds.

Are you consistently seeing slow builds even with the cache? If so, could you please review the build logs and let me know which parts of the build are taking longer than expected?
