A YAML-driven task runner for lazy people
Yo is a Yaml-driven task runner for lazy people. When you're coding, you may often need to run a long command many times, but you don't want to do all that typing every time. You don't want to have to remember the options or the flags every time. You could write a Makefile, but they're annoying. Maybe your toolkit provides the functionality, if you want to mess with that. You could use something like gulp or grunt, but that's a lot of overhead. All you really want is something like directory-specific aliases.
That's where yo comes in. All you do is write a
yo.yaml that looks something
run: poetry run flask run serve-docs: python -m http.server --directory docs/_build docs: - poetry run sphinx-build docs docs/_build | tee docs/build_errors.txt - serve-docs test: poetry run pytest
Now, in that directory you can run
yo run to run your app,
yo serve-docs to
serve your documentation folder,
yo docs to build and serve documentation,
yo test to figure out why your stupid program still isn't working. And
any arguments you pass to the
yo command will be passed through the task.
Yo can handle single commands, sequential lists, and concurrent lists. Every
command is run on the shell, so pipes and redirects work. There's also support
for environment variables and variables internal to the
yo.yaml so that you
don't have to type paths more than once. It's lazy all the way down.
