The Python ecosystem has a great many tools for various features. Pants installs, configures, and invokes those tools for you, while taking care of orchestrating the workflow, caching results, and running concurrently.
Pants currently supports the following goals and features for Python:
|Protobuf (including the
MyPy plugins), Thrift
pex, PyOxidizer, AWS lambda, Google Cloud Function
|running a REPL
There are also goals for querying and understanding your dependency graph, and a robust help system. We're adding support for additional tools and features all the time, and it's straightforward to implement your own.
