Hello everyone, I'm using pants to build python
pex
files, and I'm curious about the artifact cache. I have a python flask app which I build into
server.pex
and also some management/helper scripts, which I've built on-demand when needed. Now I'm updating my CI to build the main management script
manage.pex
. I do this by adding more targets to
pants binary
, and it works fine -- but it feels unusually slow. Building
server.pex
takes almost 2 minutes, and
manage.pex
which I think should have mostly the same dependencies (maybe one or two extra 3rdparty modules such as
click
and
tabulate
) takes just 10 seconds less. Does this sound normal, or could I be doing something wrong? 🙂
