A wrapper for the Bazel build system that provides a curses GUI for persistent configuration.

Project description


A wrapper for bazel with a GUI for configuring arguments. Running baz -q opens a configuration gui where you can set persistent bazel settings by choosing from detected .bazelrc configs, and other bazel flags.


Baz stores persistent information in ~/.config/baz/. A unique config for each directory is generated and separate settings can be configured for multiple repositories. You can delete your configuration and start over at any time with baz -d.

Add baz to your path and use baz as you would use bazel.



python3 -m pip install baz --user

If you haven't already, make sure scripts from your user site are accesible from PATH.

import site
site.USER_BASE # Prints something like `/home/username/.local/`

Take this path, and add to your ~/.bashrc as: export PATH='$PATH:/home/username/.local/bin/


baz --help

usage: [-h] [-e] [-p] [-q] [-d]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -e, --emit-build-script
                        Emit a shell script to containing the raw Bazel build command, rather than executing it. This is useful for exporting vanilla Bazel build commands to people who do not have baz.
  -p, --print-build-settings
                        Prints the build settings configured for Baz.
  -q, --configure       Run the Baz configuration TUI.
  -d, --delete-configuration
                        Permenently delete the persistent configuration file.


Unit tests can be run with nosetests.
