## 52.13. Compact generation

Let $S$ be a scheme. The site $S_{pro\text{-}\acute{e}tale}$ has enough quasi-compact, weakly contractible objects $U$. For any sheaf of rings $\mathcal{A}$ on $S_{pro\text{-}\acute{e}tale}$ the corresponding objects $j_{U!}\mathcal{A}_U$ are compact objects of the derived category $D(\mathcal{A})$, see Cohomology on Sites, Lemma 21.42.5. Since every complex of $\mathcal{A}$-modules is quasi-isomorphic to a complex whose terms are direct sums of the modules $j_{U!}\mathcal{A}_U$ (details omitted). Thus we see that $D(\mathcal{A})$ is generated by its compact objects.

The same argument works for the big pro-étale site of $S$.

The code snippet corresponding to this tag is a part of the file `proetale.tex` and is located in lines 2801–2824 (see updates for more information).

on $S_\proetale$ the corresponding objects $j_{U!}\mathcal{A}_U$

$j_{U!}\mathcal{A}_U$ (details omitted). Thus we see that
$D(\mathcal{A})$ is generated by its compact objects.
