I am developing plugins and for some reason my QGIS keeps getting slower and slower. At first when I clicked on QGIS it opened right away, now it takes at least 2 minutes just to open and it also can take up to one minute just to close. Going into Manage and install plugins now times out because it takes forever to open. The way I'm pushing my changes is with this:
@echo off SET OSGEO4W_ROOT=C:\OSGeo4W64 call "%OSGEO4W_ROOT%"\bin\o4w_env.bat @echo off path %PATH%;%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\apps\qgis\bin path %PATH%;%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\apps\grass\grass78\lib path %PATH%;C:\OSGeo4W64\apps\Qt5\bin path %PATH%;C:\OSGeo4W64\apps\Python37\Scripts set PYTHONPATH=%PYTHONPATH%;%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\apps\qgis\python set PYTHONHOME=%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\apps\Python37 set PATH=C:\Program Files\Git\bin;%PATH% cmd.exe
Which is located in C:\OSGeo4W64. I then just type in pb_tool deploy in the directory of the plugin.
I tried reinstalling QGIS 3.10.7 but it didn't change anything. Also tried on QGIS 3.12 and 3.14 and it didn't change anything.
Looking for a way to fix my QGIS being so slow. My codes use a couple of files and they are quite large so I can't really post everything here, but I'm mostly using processing algorithms from qgis and grass and I use "memory:" and "TEMPORARY_OUTPUT" for QGIS and GRASS algorithms respectively.
Just tried the Plugin Load Times and it doesn't seem to be because of my plugins:
Also here's the QGIS consumption when I just opened it and I have yet to even open a new project:
The problem seems to be coming from my QGIS3.ini. When I create a new user it's size is only 13KB while the default one is 547,018KB. The new profile's QGIS3.ini looks like this:
But the older one is actually insane it looks like this:
The [UI] part contains hundreds of millions of characters by itself and I don't know why.
