Pants v2: The ergonomic build system

Welcome to the Pants v2 documentation hub!

Pants v2 is a fast, scalable, user-friendly build system for growing codebases. It's currently focused on Python, with support for other languages coming soon.

Here you'll find guides to help you get started with Pants v2, comprehensive documentation on how to configure, run and customize Pants v2, and information on how to get help from the Pants community.

Get Started


A Jupyter plugin to load Pants targets into Jupyter Notebooks.

The pants-jupyter-plugin project provides a Jupyter plugin that can be used to load Pants targets directly into a notebook.


Jupyter plugins are typically installed using pip directly alongside Jupyter (Lab) itself.

If you don't already have Jupyter set up somewhere, create a virtualenv for it, and then install and start it by running:

# Install jupyter and the plugin (NB: please use a virtualenv!)
pip install jupyter-lab pants-jupyter-plugin
# Launch JupyterLab, which will open a browser window for notebook editing.
jupyter lab


For instructions on using the plugin, see its README.

An example session that loads a target from the example-python repository might look like:
