Hey! These docs are for version 2.14, which is no longer officially supported. Click here for the latest version, 2.17!

A first-party Go module (corresponding to a go.mod file).

Generates go_third_party_package targets based on the require directives in your go.mod.

If you have third-party packages, make sure you have an up-to-date go.sum. Run go mod tidy directly to update your go.mod and go.sum.

Backend: pants.backend.experimental.go


type: str | None
default: None

A human-readable description of the target.

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


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.
