Current implementation for new sdk (the .net core sdk), starts reading from an fsproj project file and from there traverse the project references to parse and discover more projects.

From each project, to get fsc args and project references, msbuild is called as process.

Some possibile improvements (from easier to harder):

  • cache already parsed projects (if A ref B, and C ref B, than B should be parsed just once). ref
    //TODO cache projects info of p2p ref
    . Helps if deep dependency tree, with common projects
  • Run in parallel the msbuild processes. Helps if broad dependency tree, if a project is flat with multiple project references
  • Invoke msbuild process async, no need to wait
  • Lock msbuild executions, because async request may run msbuild on same project concurrently (one will wait and fail, but waste resources)
  • Use a small pool of msbuild processes

all changes should be inside
