shell_sources

Generate a shell_source target for each file in the sources field.

dependencies

type: Iterable[str] | None
default: None

Addresses to other targets that this target depends on, e.g. ['helloworld/subdir:lib'].

Alternatively, you may include file names. Pants will find which target owns that file, and create a new target from that which only includes the file in its sources field. For files relative to the current BUILD file, prefix with ./; otherwise, put the full path, e.g. ['./sibling.txt', 'resources/demo.json'].

You may exclude dependencies by prefixing with !, e.g. ['!helloworld/subdir:lib', '!./sibling.txt']. Ignores are intended for false positives with dependency inference; otherwise, simply leave off the dependency from the BUILD file.

description

type: str | None
default: None

A human-readable description of the target.

Use ./pants list --documented :: to see all targets with descriptions.

overrides

type: Dict[Union[str, Tuple[str, ...]], Dict[str, Any]] | None
default: None

Override the field values for generated shell_source targets.

Expects a dictionary of relative file paths and globs to a dictionary for the overrides. You may either use a string for a single path / glob, or a string tuple for multiple paths / globs. Each override is a dictionary of field names to the overridden value.

For example:

overrides={
  "foo.sh": {"skip_shellcheck": True]},
  "bar.sh": {"skip_shfmt": True]},
  ("foo.sh", "bar.sh"): {"tags": ["linter_disabled"]},
}

File paths and globs are relative to the BUILD file's directory. Every overridden file is validated to belong to this target's sources field.

If you'd like to override a field's value for every shell_source target generated by this target, change the field directly on this target rather than using the overrides field.

You can specify the same file name in multiple keys, so long as you don't override the same field more than one time for the file.

skip_shellcheck

type: bool
default: False

If true, don't run Shellcheck on this target's code.

skip_shfmt

type: bool
default: False

If true, don't run shfmt on this target's code.

sources

type: Iterable[str] | None
default: ('

A list of files and globs that belong to this target.

Paths are relative to the BUILD file's directory. You can ignore files/globs by prefixing them with !.

Example: sources=['example.ext', 'test_*.ext', '!test_ignore.ext'].

tags

type: Iterable[str] | None
default: None

Arbitrary strings to describe a target.

For example, you may tag some test targets with 'integration_test' so that you could run ./pants --tag='integration_test' test :: to only run on targets with that tag.
