pw doctor confirms the environment is set up correctly. With --strict it checks that things exactly match what is expected and it checks that things look compatible without.

Projects that adjust the behavior of pw_env_setup may need to customize these checks, but unfortunately this is not supported yet.

Checks carried out by pw_doctor include:

  • The bootstrapped OS matches the current OS.

  • PW_ROOT is defined and points to the root of the Pigweed repo.

  • The presubmit git hook is installed.

  • The current Python version is 3.8 or 3.9.

  • The Pigweed virtual env is active.

  • CIPD is set up correctly and in use.

  • The CIPD packages required by Pigweed are up to date.

  • The platform support symlinks.
