考虑到在开发期间，您不希望缓存，因此您可以在代码PHP / CSS / JS中看到更改的结果。 （在这里看到一些答案来刷新缓存/禁用缓存永久性）
I'm looking for tips from other Drupal developers to make Drupal faster when developing (specially Drupal 7)
Taking in consideration that during development you don't want cache, so you can see the result of changes in code php/css/js. (See some answers here to flush cache / disable cache permanently)
Googling for "drupal slow localhost" will give some tips... but I want yours :)
You can probably get further by changing how you work instead of making Drupal faster on page loads.
The main thing here is using Drush to do stuff like clearing the cache (Even when disabling the page cache, there is still dozens of different caches involved, for example for hook implementations), installing/re-installing modules and so on.
And of course, APC should be installed, yes. You could even think about using http://drupal.org/project/apc to store parts of the cache in APC. This will however conflict with drush (you can't clear the APC cache by using drush) and will require additionaly RAM.
The best tip you can use (this really change my life) is adding a line in your
innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit = 0
You can find this file in your wamp folder or if your on linux server:
Install and enable APC. As I tested in Drupal 7, this will make your local site faster.
I updated this Drupal Tutorial with some of the solutions I found:
Speed up page loading time on localhost: http://drupal.org/node/961012
Setup and configure node.js module on localhost and see the magic.
There is nice tutorial on :-
Video - Node.js setup-Youtube.
Blog - node.js drupal integration tutorial
Drupal.org - Node.js integration Drupal.org
I have configured this on windows and it worked lightning fast :)
Thought I'd post my experience which may help future readers. I struggled with for over 24 months with a really slow Drupal 7.3x stack on an Ubuntu 15.04 desktop (I just couldn't be bothered to with more pain and just carried on!). Today, I took a stab at installing MySQL Workbench 6.1 and it now flies by! Unbelievable!! I hope any future readers will consider this first as none the suggestions offered really solved my issues. The machine I use is a fair decent spec (16g RAM/dual core/2TB/Dual-head etc), so buying/getting 'another computer', I don't believe is the true answer. In all, if you are running Drupal on a desktop then try the above Workbench install first. To date, I've found I need to run Workbench in the background (or on another screen), still my whole Drupal experience has now improved immensely. Maybe I have just been luck today? Anyway, hope this helps future readers.
I can't give a definitive reason as to why, but I've found that running a localhost webserver through a Linux virtual machine has resulted in a more responsive Drupal installation.
I can only speak for my own experience, though, so it might not necessarily be true for anybody else.
Get a faster machine.
Not only are you running apache/php/mysql on it you are also running a GUI and a IDE, probably multiple web browsers, skype, itunes all of which compete for resources. Making you drupal install and your whole machine slow.
Alternatively, have a separate machine with the Drupal install on to help spread the load.
