Create a Resource Bundle
You have resources such as JSON or YAML config files, Bash scripts, or other assets that you want to combine into a resource bundle that can be used by other Pants targets.
resources target that tells Pants which files to include in the resource bundle.
resources target definition must include a
name and a list of
sources, which can consist of a simple list of file names, multiple
rglobs definitions (more on that in Use globs and rglobs to Group Files), or any combination thereof. This would create a resource bundle with two files:
resources(name='config' sources=['server-config.yaml', 'logging-config.xml'] )
This would include a glob of files to a resource bundle:
resources(name='templates', sources=rglobs('*.mustache') )
This would include a mixture of globs, rglobs, and specific files:
resources(name='all' sources=globs('*.json') + rglobs('templates/*') + ['logback.xml'] )
You can also exclude files, globs, or rglobs using the
resources(name='python-resources', sources=rglobs('*') - rglobs('*.pyc') )
Once your resource bundle has been specified, you can depend on it from the target that consumes the resources:
java_library(name='server', sources=globs('*.java'), dependencies=[ ... 'myproject/src/main/resources:config' ] )
This dependency ensures that the files in the resource bundle will be present at runtime (e.g., for JVM binaries, they will be included on the runtime classpath).
