@enough-analyst-54434 do you have a
pex
tracking issue for the Windows support ? Specific to reading, in this channel that Pex/Windows support is the blocker for Pants/Windows support. WSL is of course "working" but not ideal so am curious status - and if you need a hand

I don't see a tracking issue for Windows support in pex. There is discussion about the lack of windows CI being a key blocker in these: • https://github.com/pantsbuild/pex/issues/1155https://github.com/pantsbuild/pex/pull/1157https://github.com/pantsbuild/pex/pull/1158 For kicks and giggles I just took a stab at getting windows running in GitHub actions: • https://github.com/cognifloyd/pex/tree/win_cihttps://github.com/cognifloyd/actions-pants/tree/win_ci Which is kinda sorta doing something: • https://github.com/cognifloyd/pex/actions/runs/4750910543 The next bit I see is finding a clean way to adjust the test fixtures - the fixtures at least need paths updated (swap
bin
for
Scripts
and add
.exe
on the misc process runs. I'm not sure what else.

There is no tracking issue and Windows CI is ~obviously no longer a problem. I dropped Windows progress to implement the scie family of projects and those use GitHub CI for Windows coverage and binary building. The branch of record is https://github.com/jsirois/pex/tree/Windows/wip and, last I checked there were ~50 ITs failing still. That's single file work since my 1 hard criteria is Windows support lands with green CI backing it up. After that, though, clearly folks that want to help out with Pants support will have everything they need.

I don't see CI for windows in that branch. Have you worked on getting things running in GHA? I ask because I don't have access to a windows machine where I can help with this, so anything I do to help would have to run via GHA or other CI to give me feedback.

There is no CI for windows setup yet, you're correct. I committed to switching from Linux to Windows for my personal development > 6 months ago to work on this; so that's how I am testing so far. The scie project proved its trivial to setup CI; so I'm not worried about that at all.

not knowing much about
scie
i of couse did some reading; and that then raised a question and thoughts 1. is pants moving over to using a
scie
file in the same way it does a
pex
scie by the acronym is good, gee that is hard to google until I found your
a-scie
repo 🙂

@fresh-continent-76371 the
pants
launcher binary that replaces the
./pants
launcher script you used to check in is a scie: https://www.pantsbuild.org/docs/installation#the-pants-binarys-implementation
