Are pack formulas built in the Packs Studio significantly slower than simply replicating the same formula in our docs with native Coda formulas (when possible)?
Heres my use case and specifics:
I just built my first pack - Its a Hex code → RGB converter. Essentially just:
Turns this → #628dbd
Into this → (98, 141, 189)
I also built this functionality natively in my Coda doc (using Coda formulas)
When I ran my Pack formula on a table of 950 rows, it took 4 min and 30 seconds to calculate. Thats a long long time.
When I used Coda native formulas (about 3 columns worth), it took mere seconds to calculate
This leads me to believe one of the following:
- Pack formulas built in pack studio are just way slow right now due to it being in beta
- Pack formulas are, and always will be just inherently slower than writing a Coda native solution, and coda native solutions should be preferred when possible
Can anyone enlighten me on what is going on? 4th option I’m not aware of?
