Hi all, had another question: does pants support caching individual tests within a pytest target?

It caches per test file, not individual test functions within a file, if that’s what you mean?

Yeah that’s what I mean
Was wondering if it would be possible to cache at the individual test function level

there are pytest plugins for that, I believe, then you “just” need to figure out how to plug those through into each invocation..

It might not be very useful to cache those since dependency resolution won't be able to figure out which dependencies correspond to each test and always rerun (all / none) of them. It helps with rerunning flaky tests though.

Yeah, this will not be straightforward, although it is something we’ve thought about
The usual advice is to break up the test files…

Ya our go to so far has been to break up test files.
Thanks all!
