PyBuilder is a software build tool written in 100% pure Python, mainly targeting Python applications.

PyBuilder is based on the concept of dependency based programming, but it also comes with a powerful plugin mechanism, allowing the construction of build life cycles similar to those known from other famous (Java) build tools.

PyBuilder is running on the following versions of Python: 2.7, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, PyPy 2.7, and PyPy 3.5.

See the Travis Build for version specific output.


PyBuilder is available using pip:

$ pip install pybuilder

For development builds use:

$ pip install --pre pybuilder

See the Cheeseshop page for more information.

Getting started

PyBuilder emphasizes simplicity. If you want to build a pure Python project and use the recommended directory layout, all you have to do is create a file with the following content:

from pybuilder.core import use_plugin


default_task = "publish"

See the PyBuilder homepage for more details and a list of plugins.

Release Notes

The release notes can be found here. There will also be a git tag with each release. Please note that we do not currently promote tags to GitHub "releases".
