Fix dependency cycle with cache folder #7693

commented May 9, 2019


There were two issues causing an import of subsystem_util.global_subsystem_instance() to fail:

  1. engine/ did not properly declare its dependency on cache
  2. cache/ had a declared dependency on engine:native, even though it was never used.


Update both engine/'s and cache/'s BUILD to reflect all the actual dependencies used, as several were missing and several unused.


The offending import now works properly.

Convert cache BUILD into an entry for each file
This pattern allows us to only import the code we actually care about and makes it easier to ensure requirements actually match whats used.
Revert "Convert cache BUILD into an entry for each file"
This reverts commit ec9077d.

Actually this API becomes really annoying to import.
