Buck: buck fetch

buck fetch

A command that fetches one or more resources defined by remote_file rules. This should generally by run before buck build if remote_file rules are used in the repository. You must specify one or more build targets on the command line.

Buck will look at the transitive dependencies of the target you specify, so it is usually best to specify your top-level target in order to get all the remote objects you require.

We strongly believe that you and your team will have a better experience if you check your dependencies into your repository and use one of the provided prebuilt_ rules instead. The Buck team encourages you to stop trying to make fetch happen.
