Example Python repository
See here for examples of Pants's Python functionality.
Most Python functionality is provided by the
pants.backend.python backend. This backend is bundled in the core Pants distribution, so you don't need to specify a plugin for it.
Enable the Python backend like this:
[GLOBAL] ... backend_packages2 = [ 'pants.backend.python' ]
You should now see some new goals available:
$ ./pants goals Goals ----- Use `./pants help $goal` to get help for a particular goal. binary Create a runnable binary. cloc Print counts of lines of code. filedeps List all source and BUILD files a target depends on. list Lists all targets matching the target specs. repl Opens a REPL. roots List the repo's registered source roots. run Runs a runnable target. setup-py Run setup.py commands. target-types List all the registered target types, including custom plugin types. test Runs tests.
