config

Report an issue View source

This is a top-level module for creating configuration transitions and build setting descriptors which describe what kind of build setting (if any) a rule is.

ex: the following rule is marked as a build setting by setting the build_setting parameter of the rule() function. Specifically it is a build setting of type int and is a flag which means this build setting is callable on the command line.

  my_rule = rule(
    implementation = _impl,
    build_setting = config.int(flag = True),
    ...
  )

Members

bool

BuildSetting config.bool(flag=False)

A bool-typed build setting

Parameters

Parameter Description
flag bool; default is False
Whether or not this build setting is callable on the command line.

exec

ExecTransitionFactory config.exec(exec_group=None)

Creates an execution transition.

Parameters

Parameter Description
exec_group string; or None; default is None
The name of the exec group whose execution platform this transition will use. If not provided, this exec transition will use the target's default execution platform.

int

BuildSetting config.int(flag=False)

An integer-typed build setting

Parameters

Parameter Description
flag bool; default is False
Whether or not this build setting is callable on the command line.

string

BuildSetting config.string(flag=False, allow_multiple=False)

A string-typed build setting

Parameters

Parameter Description
flag bool; default is False
Whether or not this build setting is callable on the command line.
allow_multiple bool; default is False
Deprecated, use a string_list setting with repeatable = True instead. If set, this flag is allowed to be set multiple times on the command line. The Value of the flag as accessed in transitions and build setting implementation function will be a list of strings. Insertion order and repeated values are both maintained. This list can be post-processed in the build setting implementation function if different behavior is desired.

string_list

BuildSetting config.string_list(flag=False, repeatable=False)

A string list-typed build setting. On the command line pass a list using comma-separated value like --//my/setting=foo,bar.

Parameters

Parameter Description
flag bool; default is False
Whether or not this build setting is callable on the command line.
repeatable bool; default is False
If set, instead of expecting a comma-separated value, this flag is allowed to be set multiple times on the command line with each individual value treated as a single string to add to the list value. Insertion order and repeated values are both maintained. This list can be post-processed in the build setting implementation function if different behavior is desired.

target

transition config.target()

Creates a target transition. This is a no-op transition intended for the case where a transition object is needed, but doesn't want to actually change anything. Equivalent to cfg = "target" in attr.label().
