Pchevalier/local execution server #8213



Copy link

commented Aug 27, 2019


To test pants behaviour on remoting, the current practice consists of creating a ssh tunnel to one of the execution servers or running a local scoot server. This creates a barrier to quickly testing one's changes.


Create a local_execution_server executable that leverages the mock execution server library.


This allows us to run an execution server on localhost that will expect exactly one request (described through CLI arguments) and react to it with a default operation.
We may want to enrich what this local_execution_server can do in the future (such as handle multiple requests), but only do the minimum needed at the moment. The CLI application can always be extended later on a per-need basis.

Note: this is a subset from #8166. I am aiming to make that PR more lightweight as I keep troubleshooting the travis issues over there.
