Project description

Extends pythonic task management & command execution with file dependencies.

Latest Version on PyPI Supported Implementations


pyinvokedepends is an extension of pyinvoke to allow more "makefile" like task definitions.

It introduces an additional decorator @depends which can be used in addtion to pyinvoke's decorator @task. Adding this decorator to a task will make sure that the task is only executed when any of to files is newer than one of the created files.

For a simple example, consider the following In contrast to traditional make, this will always run gcc hello.c

from invoke import task
def compile(c):"gcc hello.c", echo=True)

With pyinvokedepends we can add dependencies:

from invoke import task
from pyinvokedepends import depends
@depends(on=["./hello.c"], creates=["./a.out"])
def test(c):
def compile(c):"gcc hello.c", echo=True)

The task will only execute if the file ./hello.c is newer than the file ./a.out. Otherwise, the execution will be skipped.

The values of the parameters on and creates are lists of globs. At lease one the files matching (one of) the on globs must exist. The task is executed

  • if no file exists which matches (any of) the creates globs, or
  • one of the files matching the on globs is newer than at least one file of the creates globs.

It does not automatically add pre or post steps to the task based on the dependencies.
