TemplateVariableInfo

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.
Encapsulates template variables, that is, variables that can be referenced by strings like $(VARIABLE) in BUILD files and expanded by ctx.expand_make_variables and implicitly in certain attributes of built-in rules.

TemplateVariableInfo can be created by calling its eponymous constructor with a string-to-string dict as an argument that specifies the variables provided.

Example: platform_common.TemplateVariableInfo({'FOO': 'bar'})

Members

to_json

string TemplateVariableInfo.to_json()

Deprecated. This API is deprecated and will be removed soon. Please do not depend on it. It is disabled with ---incompatible_struct_has_no_methods. Use this flag to verify your code is compatible with its imminent removal.
Creates a JSON string from the struct parameter. This method only works if all struct elements (recursively) are strings, ints, booleans, other structs, a list of these types or a dictionary with string keys and values of these types. Quotes and new lines in strings are escaped. Examples:
struct(key=123).to_json()
# {"key":123}

struct(key=True).to_json()
# {"key":true}

struct(key=[1, 2, 3]).to_json()
# {"key":[1,2,3]}

struct(key='text').to_json()
# {"key":"text"}

struct(key=struct(inner_key='text')).to_json()
# {"key":{"inner_key":"text"}}

struct(key=[struct(inner_key=1), struct(inner_key=2)]).to_json()
# {"key":[{"inner_key":1},{"inner_key":2}]}

struct(key=struct(inner_key=struct(inner_inner_key='text'))).to_json()
# {"key":{"inner_key":{"inner_inner_key":"text"}}}
.

Deprecated: instead, use json.encode(x) or json.encode_indent(x), which work for values other than structs and do not pollute the struct field namespace.

to_proto

string TemplateVariableInfo.to_proto()

Deprecated. This API is deprecated and will be removed soon. Please do not depend on it. It is disabled with ---incompatible_struct_has_no_methods. Use this flag to verify your code is compatible with its imminent removal.
Creates a text message from the struct parameter. This method only works if all struct elements (recursively) are strings, ints, booleans, other structs or dicts or lists of these types. Quotes and new lines in strings are escaped. Struct keys are iterated in the sorted order. Examples:
struct(key=123).to_proto()
# key: 123

struct(key=True).to_proto()
# key: true

struct(key=[1, 2, 3]).to_proto()
# key: 1
# key: 2
# key: 3

struct(key='text').to_proto()
# key: "text"

struct(key=struct(inner_key='text')).to_proto()
# key {
#   inner_key: "text"
# }

struct(key=[struct(inner_key=1), struct(inner_key=2)]).to_proto()
# key {
#   inner_key: 1
# }
# key {
#   inner_key: 2
# }

struct(key=struct(inner_key=struct(inner_inner_key='text'))).to_proto()
# key {
#    inner_key {
#     inner_inner_key: "text"
#   }
# }

struct(foo={4: 3, 2: 1}).to_proto()
# foo: {
#   key: 4
#   value: 3
# }
# foo: {
#   key: 2
#   value: 1
# }

Deprecated: use proto.encode_text(x) instead.

variables

dict TemplateVariableInfo.variables

Returns the make variables defined by this target as a dictionary with string keys and string values
