Pants v2: Fast, consistent builds for Python and more

Welcome to the Pants v2 documentation hub!

Pants v2 is a fast, scalable 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

The Python import sorter tool (https://timothycrosley.github.io/isort/).

Config section: [isort]

Basic options

--[no-]isort-skip
PANTS_ISORT_SKIP
skip
default: False
Don't use isort when running `./pants fmt` and `./pants lint`

--isort-args="[<shell_str>, <shell_str>, ...]"
PANTS_ISORT_ARGS
args
default: []
Arguments to pass directly to isort, e.g. `--isort-args="--case-sensitive --trailing-comma"`

Advanced options

PANTS_ISORT_VERSION
version
default: isort[pyproject]>=5.5.1,<5.6

--isort-extra-requirements="['<str>', '<str>', ...]"
PANTS_ISORT_EXTRA_REQUIREMENTS
extra_requirements
default:
[
  "setuptools"
]

Any additional requirement strings to use with the tool. This is useful if the tool allows you to install plugins or if you need to constrain a dependency to a certain version.

--isort-entry-point=<str>
PANTS_ISORT_ENTRY_POINT

interpreter_constraints
default:
[
  "CPython>=3.6"
