While nightly builds can be a good practice for many projects, LC is
unusually complex, and requires a LOT of time to run their build system.
In addition to compiling for desktop for Mac, Windows, and Linux, they
also need to compile deployment engines for iOS and Android, and Server
engines for Mac, Windows, and Linux. All but the Server engines then
need to be copied into each deliverable so we can deploy to all the
platforms we enjoy with LC, and those then need to go through the tool
that builds the installers.
So while most apps only need a single build for one or two platforms, LC
needs to run multiple steps across a much larger number of platforms.
This multiplies the time so much that I would imagine it would take many
hours to build a release, making it impractical to run daily.
The team makes _using_ LC so easy that we often forget that the
behind-the-scenes work is so complex almost no other company even
attempts to support as many platforms with this level of integrated GUI
