  • Invoke

    Pythonic task management & command execution.

    Project mention: Build tool for small project /w PyCharm integration | | 2021-10-25

    invoke is great as it's a Python package so can be installed with your dependency manager of choice as a development dependency.

  • spack

    A flexible package manager that supports multiple versions, configurations, platforms, and compilers.

    Project mention: The Curse of NixOS | | 2022-01-24

    You might as well try Spack, it's Python + a dsl to customize builds in a single line. Guix package descriptions look very daunting to me.

    Another similar build tool is pants.

  • PyBuilder

    Software build automation tool for Python.

  • Nox

    Flexible test automation for Python

    Project mention: Looking Beyond Nox | | 2021-04-08

    I've gone through what I assume is a fairly typical journey between different ways to run tasks related to a Python project: from hand-rolled shell and Python scripts, to tox, to Nox. To be honest, I'm not sure how many people have switched from tox to Nox, but now that I've used Nox, I don't ever want to edit a tox.ini file again.

    Project mention: Advice for running adhoc Python scripts in Lambda | | 2021-09-17

    On Python package caching, (Buildout)[] will install Python packages in a cache directory. For example, `mypackage-1.0.0`, `mypackage-1.10`, `mypackage-2.0dev` and then it outputs wrapper scripts that append just the selected packages to sys.path.
