How to share code between django project and DO function.

I think my code would do well sharing a django model between my django project and a DO function. Am I able to do this? Are there any examples of DO functions using code outside their package folders?

Hey @lucidguppy,

I don’t think that there is an out-of-the-box way to do this. Here are a couple of suggestions:

For apps, you could use a mono repo as described here:

That way you could share different models as it will all be under the same code base.

Alternatively, you could expose an API that returns the information that you need via an HTTP endpoint which you could hit with your functions.

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!

- Bobby.
