Speed up Saleforce Development

Fast Salesforce `staticresrouces` Development Locally The problem with front end development in the cloud is that it is painfully slow! Unfortunately this is the reality of the cloud nature of SF and it will remain so - at least until there will be ability to spin up local SF development servers.
