I keep forgetting this nice little help feature.. 🧵
💪 1
I’m currently looking at adding a little feature involving lockfiles/resolves and trying to grok the overall design, this helps a lot:
Copy code
╭─ zsh  ~/src/github/kaos/pants   main ?1 ~1                                                                                                     20:42:44 
╰─❯ ./pants GenerateToolLockfileSentinel --help

`pants.core.goals.generate_lockfiles.GenerateToolLockfileSentinel` api type
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tools use this as an entry point to say how to generate their tool lockfile.

Each language ecosystem should set up a union member of `GenerateLockfile`, like
`GeneratePythonLockfile`, as explained in that class's docstring.

Each language ecosystem should also subclass `GenerateToolLockfileSentinel`, e.g.
`GeneratePythonToolLockfileSentinel`. The subclass does not need to do anything - it is only used to know which language ecosystems tools correspond to.

Then, each tool should subclass their language ecosystem's subclass of `GenerateToolLockfileSentinel` and set up a rule that goes from the
subclass -> the language's lockfile request, e.g. BlackLockfileSentinel ->
GeneratePythonLockfile. Register `UnionRule(GenerateToolLockfileSentinel, MySubclass)`.

               SetuptoolsSCMLockfileSentinel
               StripJarToolLockfileSentinel
               TwineLockfileSentinel

Include API types and rules dependency information by running `./pants help-advanced pants.core.goals.generate_lockfiles.GenerateToolLockfileSentinel`.
the list of union members in particular in this case, as hunting them down would have been… well a well-formed shell command but still.. this is more easily comprehensible 🙂
