To clarify the role of B_dist - it's just a way of providing metadata that gets passed to
setup.py
. Depending on it doesn't do anything. If you want to depend on a published version of B then you do so like any other "3rdparty" requirement (but you have to have published it first). But I'm guessing that's not what you want? Typically since
A/tests
and
B
are in the same repo you would have
A/tests
depend on
B
as an internal dependency. That is,
A/tests
's
python_tests
should depend on B's
python_library
(not its
python_distribution
). Then the test can invoke B's code directly (rather than spawning a process to run it).
