Some of you experienced for sure how Magento can be slow on localhost (either you use XAMPP, WAMPP or whatever).

There are a few things that can be done in order to speed up Magento on localhost:

1. Increase memory in php.ini and .htaccess file


Main Magento .htaccess
php_value memory_limit 2048M

2. Enable Cache
Go to System > Cache Management in Magento backend and enable cache for everything listed

3. Static content deploy
Run the following command in terminal (make sure to navigate to Magento site folder first)
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
