Tactic Troubles

charming

#1

Hello,

Just wrote my first tactic and I’m experiencing an issue. The issue is that I cannot build my charm without including the wheelhouse tactic in my charm.

Running make build in my layer shows (layer.yaml)

Adding the wheelhouse.py tactic to my tactics/ and to my layer.yaml allows the charm to build.

any ideas here?

Thanks

Cross-posting from the bug for visibility:

The caas-base layer includes a custom WheelhouseTactic to override the default one built into charm build to account for the fact that k8s charms cannot perform the normal bootstrap and installation, so instead of bundling packaged wheel or egg files, it has to essentially create an embedded virtualenv. However, both the tactics/ directory and the tactics: [] list in layer.yaml should be merged without you having to re-specify and include that custom tactic.

That the merging isn’t happening as it should is a bug with charm build.
