What is the lowest latency method to share files between Linux (Ubuntu specifically) and macOS?

    When doing resource intensive sharing for development scenarios with many files that need to be accessed (such as high/many files needed for Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, large C++ projects, Rust compilation, etc.), but editing (editors, IDEs, etc.) and similar access will be done with programs on macOS, what is the ideal sharing setup?

    While I have not benchmarked this, I have to suppose that (similar to the WSL drama from before) it would be faster for development and compilation to host the files that will be accessed via frameworks and during compilation on the Linux virtual machine instead of macOS.

    Is this true, and if so or otherwise, what is the optimal way to setup sharing between systems to facilitate optimal / lowest latency for file access?
