I'm trying to set
named_caches_dir
and
local_store_dir
in my
pants.ci.toml
. I have
PANTS_CONFIG_FILES=pants.ci.toml
set an environment variable in my CI, but when I look at
./pants help-advanced global
(again in my CI) I see
Copy code
local_store_dir
      default: /root/.cache/pants/lmdb_store
      current value: /root/.cache/pants/lmdb_store
In my
pants.ci.toml
I have
Copy code
[GLOBAL]
pantsd = true
named_caches_dir = "/codefresh/volume/.cache/pants/named_caches"
local_store_dir = "/codefresh/volume/.cache/pants/lmdb_store"
In
pants.toml
I have
Copy code
[GLOBAL]
pants_version = "2.14.1"
I can sanity check
Copy code
root@codefresh:/codefresh/volume/archipelago$ echo $PANTS_CONFIG_FILES
pants.ci.toml
and
ls /codefresh/volume/.cache/pants
only shows
setup
. If I run
./pants test capstan/:: --local-store-dir=/codefresh/volume/.cache/pants/lmdb_store
I see
lmdb_store
. when I
ls
. Am I doing something wrong, I'm not sure why my configuration isn't getting picked up

That looks to me like it should work
So time to debug. For example, try this in CI:
./pants --pants-config-files=pants.ci.toml help-advanced global
to see if the issue is with the env var.

edit - To add context. After running the above command I see
Copy code
--local-store-dir=<str>
  PANTS_LOCAL_STORE_DIR
  local_store_dir
      default: /root/.cache/pants/lmdb_store
      current value: /root/.cache/pants/lmdb_store
      Directory to use for the local file store, which stores the results of
      subprocesses run by Pants.
FYI I also had to run
Copy code
stty rows 50 cols 80
which I learned from https://github.com/CircleCI-Public/gcp-cli-orb/issues/36 but I guess one thing at a time
Here's a sanity check that's failing
Copy code
root@codefresh:/codefresh/volume/archipelago$ cat pants.ci.toml 
[GLOBAL]
pantsd = false
my CI is lying to me Edit - I forked a repo to play around with CI and it looks like the other repo was hardcoded in the clone step. I didn't know that was there! I was under the impression it'd clone my forked repo because that's the repo I used when creating the pipeline.
Heh I'm tempted to just delete this whole post to save face 🙃
Good news is
ls
is doing what I expect now
Copy code
