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


External Python code repositories, such as PyPI.

These options may be used to point to custom cheeseshops when resolving requirements.

Config section: [python-repos]

Basic options


Advanced options


--python-repos-repos="['<str>', '<str>', ...]"
default: []

URLs of code repositories to look for requirements. In Pip and Pex, this option corresponds to the `--find-links` option.


--python-repos-indexes="['<str>', '<str>', ...]"

URLs of code repository indexes to look for requirements. If set to an empty list, then Pex will use no indices (meaning it will not use PyPI). The values should be compliant with PEP 503.
