  • How do you deal with CI, project config, etc. falling out of sync across repos?
    I like mage for Go and doit for Python. Source: 7 months ago
  • Show HN: Jeeves – A Pythonic Alternative to GNU Make
    An alternative to Scons could be Doit (), which if I remember correctly was built as a faster alternative to Scons. See also reasons of some users to prefer the later to other mentioned here: . - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago
  • Makefile Tricks for Python Projects
    Or use and a virtualenv and be happy. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Write Posix Shell
    If you code in Python, your probably should use the language as much as possible and avoid calling shell commands. E.G: - manipulate the file system with pathlib - do hashes with hashlib - zip with zipfile - set error code with sys.exit - use os.environ for env vars - print to stderr with print(..., file=...) - sometimes you'll need to install lib. Like, if you want to manipulate a git repo, instead of calling the... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Alternatives to Makefile for Python
    I've been using Doit for a project which involves gathering together documents made up of multiple Markdown files and converting to multiple formats. It's really cool but has some irritations. It didn't end up being much simpler than Make for me. I'm interested in trying some of the alternatives people have posted. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Just: A Command Runner
    Competition: I've been using it for a while and it's pretty flexible:. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • I used Python to control a custom stop-motion animation drawing machine
    The code for all of this is available here, and described in detail in my article. I'm particularly fan of doit for this type of project, and highly encourage everyone to check it out! Source: over 1 year ago
  • Monorepo Build Tools
    Instead, I use pydoit (which is basically a Python version of make). It's simple, flexible, and quite extensible. So, here's what I do with it:. Source: over 1 year ago
  • What is a good alternative to Makefile?
    I found these two and but I am still looking for alternatives. Is there any more? Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Redo: A recursive, general-purpose build system
    Did you try, it's a build tool in similar spirit, which allows the actions to be either python-functions or external programs. Try to look past their tutorial 1, I don't know why they mixed in module_imports there, making it look a lot more complicated than what it really is. - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Makefile vs Bash vs Python vs Node vs silver bullet for documenting tasks.
    I tried and it looks OKish, especially if teammates approve Python (like Java/Node guys hate everything outside their runtime). Source: about 3 years ago
  • Is Idem ready?
    Https:// is interesting alternatives for wrappers around CLI but it requires to be familiar with Python... Source: about 3 years ago
  • Looking Beyond Nox
    So far, I've looked, relatively superficially, at Ninja, doit, Bazel, and SCons. It looks to me like Ninja and doit won't handle the third point above without requiring something really strange, and if Bazel or SCons documents things one way or the other, I haven't found it yet. - Source: / about 3 years ago
  • How to best integrate make-like functionality with invoke tasks/library?
    I have an invoke script and now it needs some make-like functionality. I could use make to call some invoke tasks, but I'm looking for a more integrated approach. Does anybody have experience using invoke with python-based build automation tools like doit or luigi? Source: about 3 years ago
