A collection of experimental BuildStream plugins.
A collection of “experimental” plugins for BuildStream 2.0.
This repo collects plugins which don’t provide the strong API guarantees required by the buildstream-plugins project.
How to use this repo
The plugins in this repo do not provide strong API guarantees or backwards compatibility. You should use a specific commit in your project and update it manually as needed.
You are recommended to import these plugins into your project using the junction plugins feature of BuildStream 2.0 so you can control exactly what Git commit is used. This is done in several stages documented below:
Using via a junction
plugins: - origin: pip package-name: buildstream-plugins sources: - git
Now, add a junction element referencing this repo. Here’s an example you could save as bst-plugins-experimental.bst in your elements directory:
kind: junction sources: - kind: git url: https://gitlab.com/BuildStream/bst-plugins-experimental track: master
You can then run bst source track bst-plugins-experimental.bst to set the ref field appropriately.
Finally you can define specific plugins you want to use in project.conf:
plugins: - origin: junction junction: bst-plugins-experimental.bst sources: - pypi elements: - pep517
You can use Git’s ‘submodules’ feature to import this repo into your project’s repo, then declare the plugins as local plugins.
BuildStream also supports pip plugins which are imported from the host Python environment. While bst-plugins-experimental is available on PyPI, the project does not provide any backwards compatibility or “semantic versioning” guarantees. Make sure you can control exactly what of the package version is used if you consume it via Pip.
