For the name of
python_binary
, the built pex file name is exactly the same string of name field in BUILD, so it’s possible that I got same file name
app.pex
from
./pants binary app1:app
and
./pants binary app2:app
(if I have defined both library and binary in that BUILD, I cannot use something like
./pants binary app1
), any suggestion for the best practice of the name in
python_binary
?

For Toolchain’s codebase, where we have a lot of Django, we usually use names like
users-worker
vs.
users-worker-manage
. For Pants own repository, we have lots of Python scripts like
check_headers.py
. We name the
python_binary
the exact same thing, like
check_headers
, so we get
dist/check_headers.pex
