Is naming the real confusion or is it existence? I know Pants fairly well and am continually bamboozled by the fact I need to lay down an empty
python_library()
declaration for my
pex_binary(...actual metadata I wrote down...)
to work. Whether the - what looks like a no-op -
python_library()
was a
foo()
or a
bar()
I'd still be mystified by the need. I can go read excellent docs that explain this to me, but at that point the newbie game is up and I can learn what
python_library()
the word means.
