In my package I have a JSON file served as Static Resource. Whenever I change and save this file from a current version of the Force.com IDE it takes forever until its finally saved. I idles around 23% for 10 minutes.

I have no idea why.

I had the same problem when I was using a Static Resource as a JSON file. I ended up using TextWrangler (Mac) to cleanse the text, which I then pasted into the file. That solved the problem for me.

  1. Create a new file in TextWrangler
  2. Paste in the text (JSON)
  3. Go to View => Text Display => Show Invisibles
  4. Go to Text => Zap Gremlins
  5. Select "Replace With" and enter a space as the replacement character
  6. Click Zap
  7. In my case, this operation replaces a bunch of characters that looked like space with a "real" space
  8. Copy the text and paste it into your static resource
  9. Save. It should save immediately.
