./pants run [args]

Runs a binary target.

This goal propagates the return code of the underlying executable.

If your application can safely be restarted while it is running, you can pass restartable=True on your binary target (for supported types), and the run goal will automatically restart them as all relevant files change. This can be particularly useful for server applications.

Backend: pants.core
