This might be a very stupid question, in which case I apologise - but I’ve read through all the source code
I can find without understanding why.
So, when using the pre-installed image on a Rev C BBB and running one of the examples - say “demo_blinkled”, the
board responds more or less immediately. But, when running the exact same program “manually” from the CLI over SSH,
it takes at least 3-5 seconds before the board reacts.
My conclusion is that this time is basically the board loading the node-environment on script start when running from the CLI, but
that the page presenting demos on the pre-installed image are already running within this environment and thus, of course
doesn’t need to start it.
Is it this simple or is there some kind of optimisation I just can’t find in source code anywhere?
