The publishing cache and Stacks partials. How does it work

I recently got asked a very interesting question concerning Stacks, Partials, and how pages are marked as needing to be published, and how they are actually published.

Of course, you can be sure that Stacks and RapidWeaver are working together to do the right thing, minimize the amount needed to upload to your host – but always catching all the changes that do need to be published – but the details of how and why this works the way it it does are… well… complicated.

So I wrote it up and posted it here with lots of details about what’s going on – and even a short test that you can do to make sure RapidWeaver isn’t uploading too much:

Also: If you have any burning questions make sure to ask them there on – we try to get all the best info collected there for easy searching.
