PyBuilder is a software build tool written in 100% pure Python, mainly targeting Python applications.
PyBuilder is based on the concept of dependency based programming, but it also comes with a powerful plugin mechanism, allowing the construction of build life cycles similar to those known from other famous (Java) build tools.
PyBuilder is running on the following versions of Python 3.7, 3.8, 3.9, 3.10, 3.11 and PyPy 3.7, 3.8 and 3.9.
See the GitHub Actions Workflow for version specific output.
PyBuilder is available using pip:
$ pip install pybuilder
For development builds use:
$ pip install --pre pybuilder
See the PyPI for more information.
PyBuilder emphasizes simplicity. If you want to build a pure Python project and use the recommended directory layout, all you have to do is create a file build.py with the following content:
from pybuilder.core import use_plugin use_plugin("python.core") use_plugin("python.unittest") use_plugin("python.coverage") use_plugin("python.distutils") default_task = "publish"
See the PyBuilder homepage for more details and a list of plugins.
The release notes can be found here. There will also be a git tag with each release. Please note that we do not currently promote tags to GitHub "releases".
