I’ve been trying to upgrade from 1.16 -> 1.27, made a lot of progress, but im having issues with python lint. I see this step fail
pythonstyle
. I’ll attach the actual stack trace as a response to this message. I added some debugging to the pants python code, and it looks like it is resolving dependencies to the root site-packages directory rather than the individual one per each dependency
[pantsbuild.pants.contrib.python.checks.checker 1.27.0 (/Users/lawrencefinn/.cache/pants/setup/bootstrap-Darwin-x86_64/pants.4g9T7C/install/lib/python3.6/site-packages), pyflakes 2.1.1 (/Users/lawrencefinn/.cache/pants/setup/bootstrap-Darwin-x86_64/pants.4g9T7C/install/lib/python3.6/site-packages), pycodestyle 2.4.0 (/Users/lawrencefinn/.cache/pants/setup/bootstrap-Darwin-x86_64/pants.4g9T7C/install/lib/python3.6/site-packages), six 1.15.0 (/Users/lawrencefinn/.cache/pants/setup/bootstrap-Darwin-x86_64/pants.4g9T7C/install/lib/python3.6/site-packages)]
. Not sure what to do here, maybe i have some dumb flag?

sorry for the trouble… is there a particular reason you chose to target 1.27? it’s possible that releasing a slightly older version, and then jumping to 1.30 might be feasible?

12/14/2020, 5:41 PM
im not sure if i remember why 27, but is it buggy or just that no one remembers it very well? 😛

witty-crayon-22786

12/14/2020, 5:41 PM
the latter =/
i’m not able to find any references to that error, although i seem to remember that it was fixed at some point. so my bias was toward suggesting getting on a more recent version. but given the distance you’re upgrading, at least two hops might be reasonable.

12/14/2020, 5:52 PM
i dont think ill be able to carve out the time to do that, a lot of time went into the 1.27 upgrade already and it is mostly working except for py lint 😞
w

witty-crayon-22786

12/14/2020, 5:53 PM
ok. then you might consider targeting the very latest
(latest 1.x)
1.30

polite-vase-75369

12/14/2020, 5:55 PM
hmmm, py check isn’t in 1.30?
w

witty-crayon-22786

12/14/2020, 6:00 PM
so in 1.30.x, the expectation is that linters will be run with v2 (and they are not distributed as a separate module).
could go to 1.29.x if you want to defer doing that.

polite-vase-75369

12/14/2020, 6:03 PM
should we be using a different linter?
even in 27?
w

witty-crayon-22786

12/14/2020, 6:03 PM
what do you mean?
p

polite-vase-75369

12/14/2020, 6:04 PM
i mean, is it meant to work in 27? or should i switch to a newer linter?
im getting the same error in 29 too
w

witty-crayon-22786

12/14/2020, 6:06 PM
it is supposed to work before 1.30.x… i just don’t recall where that issue would have been fixed. if it’s broken in 1.29.x though, it might be an issue that we did not fix in v1.
@enough-analyst-54434: does the stacktrace at the top look familiar to you? i could have sworn that that was related to a fixed bug, but cannot find it.

By 1.27 you can run all python functionality in v2, no? Is that the ultimate goal here?
p

polite-vase-75369

12/14/2020, 7:09 PM
how do you mix run things in v1 and v2?
i added some debugging info, it looks like it gets stuck on trying to resolve a dependency of six, does that sound familiar at all @witty-crayon-22786?

./pants --v2 lint
, for example.
the 1.30.x “upgrading” docs talk about running in mixed mode: https://www.pantsbuild.org/v1.30/docs/how-to-upgrade-to-the-v2-engine

@polite-vase-75369 add
pants.backend.python.lint.flake8
under
backend_packages2
. Also set
v2 = true
. Both in the
[GLOBAL]
section Then, lint will use both v1 and v2 linters. You'll want to remove the problematic v1 plugin
Flake8 should be a much better experience than the checkstyle task, which was a kind of weird fork of flake8. You'll get more checks, can use a standard flake8 config file, and can use flake8 plugins

12/14/2020, 7:16 PM
this works in 1.27 too?
h

hundreds-father-404

12/14/2020, 7:17 PM
Yes, it should. No need to target 1.30
You can also hook up Black, v2 isort, docformatter, and Pylint. All without using v2 for the rest of things like running tests. https://www.pantsbuild.org/v1.27/docs/python-linters-and-formatters We wanted to allow for incremental adoption of v2

12/14/2020, 7:23 PM
let me see if i can get this to work. our company is scala + python, and sadly im not very pythonic
hmmm i have a custom build type that isn’t being recognized in the new v2
Copy code
Target type 'aiq_python_awslambda'
but i added it to backend_packages2

You'll need to write a light weight binding with the Target API. See the info box on https://www.pantsbuild.org/v1.28/docs/target-api-concepts for instructions and an example Even though those docs are 1.28, we added the target api in 1.27 so it should work

polite-vase-75369

12/14/2020, 7:43 PM
ok hmm
im also getting
Copy code
Exception: Unmatched glob from the option `--flake8-config`: "build-support/.flake8"
some reason it isn’t happy in that dir
h

hundreds-father-404

12/14/2020, 7:47 PM
Hm, what's the full error? The value should be relative to the build root, eg
build-support/.flake8
It's possible also that it's being unintentionally included in
pants_ignore
. You could try removing the leading . to check - in older pants version, we were over eager with the default value for pants_ignore
p

polite-vase-75369

12/14/2020, 7:50 PM
yeah i think that was it
im trying to ignore those weird lambda packages because i dont really care to lint them right now, but the flake8 config for ignoring doesn’t seem to handle it?
i guess i can make tags
okay i got flake8 to work, hacked up the jenkinsfile to run new lint commands like --v2 or whatever, so i think it is working fine, thanks all

happy-kitchen-89482

12/14/2020, 8:43 PM
W00t! We're encouraging people to upgrade to v2 where possible, and once we have Scala support in v2 you should be able to completely switch over
But we don't know when that will be exactly yet
p

polite-vase-75369

12/14/2020, 8:44 PM
yeah, im eager to keep upgrading. any idea on the general timing around that? i know that’s hard to come up with lol
