A collection of experimental BuildStream plugins.

Project description

A collection of plugins for the BuildStream project.

How to use this repo

At the moment, this repo is a sort of incubation repo; it contains things which explicitly don’t yet have strong API guarantees.

Therefore, for the time being we recommend use bst-plugins-experimental as a submodule for your buildstream projects.

Using the plugins locally within a project

To use the bst-plugins-experimental plugins locally within a BuildStream project, you will first need to clone the repo to a location within your project:

git clone

The plugins must be declared in project.conf. To do this, please refer to BuildStream’s Local plugins documentation.

Using the plugins as a Python package

To use the bst-plugins-experimental plugins as a Python package within a BuildStream project, you will first need to install bst-plugins-experimental via pip:

git clone
cd bst-plugins-experimental
pip install --user -e .

To ensure it’s installed, try: pip show bst-plugins-experimental, this should show information about the package.


The -e option ensures that changes made to the git repository are reflected in the Python package’s behaviour.

Then, the plugins must be declared in the project.conf. The implementation of this is explained in BuildStream’s Pip plugins documentation
