How to import code from Git into a Dataiku DSS project library

Can you import code from Git to be used within a Dataiku DSS project? Yes!

An important end goal of writing code is to be able to reuse it, whether within a DSS project, across projects within a DSS instance, or for projects external to DSS.

To this end, you can define code libraries within DSS that contain reusable code, and you can connect these libraries to remote git repositories.

For example, if you have code that has been developed outside of DSS and is available in a Git repository (for example, a library created by another team), you can import this repository (or a part of it) in the project libraries, and use it in any code capability of DSS (such as recipes, notebooks, or web apps).
