How to disable live reloading in Quarkus?

I have a Qurkus application which I run in Dev mode:

./mvnw compile quarkus:dev

I have an issue that Quarkus reloads classes also when I don’t want it to (dependent project updated, etc) which takes quite a lot of time.

Question: Is there a way to disable live reloading in dev mode?

I went through the Quarkus documentation, but couldn’t find if there is such an option.

Answer

You can disable it with Quarkus since 2.0.0.Alpha3 by enabling the corresponding option in the console (Quarkus tells you which key you need to press to do that – it’s l).
