This section still needs a lot of work, but it can be a good start. :)

Using the raw plugin

Note: We now recommend using the copy plugin, which is an improved version of the raw plugin. https://github.com/almero-digital-marketing/docpad-plugin-copy

This plugin allows you to quickly copy files that are found in the /src/raw directory to the /out directory without going through DocPad's rendering, thus making it a much quicker process.

Especially useful if placing them in the /src/static (or /src/files) folder is still slow.

Check the plugins section of the DocPad docs for instructions on how to install plugins.
