Hi, Im using the dbt integration, specifically DBTTest and have a dependency on an external package. As for as I could see, I don’t think the integration supports that. Typically we install this with
dbt deps
, but Im wondering what the best approach is with a Flyte workflow. Should I add it to the Dockerfile? Or rather in a task pre-execution function, or somewhere else?
do you mean you need to trigger an import in python?
or just that it’s installed in the virtualenv at execution time?
No it’s not a Python package, but rather a dbt package. I think it would be nice to integrate this into the Dbt integration, is there contact information somewhere for who maintains the integrations? I will see if I can add it.
If you'd like to contribute to the integration, you should be able to do so: https://github.com/flyteorg/flytekit/tree/master/plugins/flytekit-dbt. Also, for the time being, you can add the dependency to your Dockerfile.
Great 😄 Thanks a lot @Samhita Alla!
