3rd party libs, is there a policy?

I’m not having much luck using the dependency tool to upload a 3rd party lib. I’ll try again in a bit.

But that aside, I can understand why you would want to host libs with the apps (speed and versioning) but is it against policy (if there is one) to just link in to a lib hosted elsewhere, e.g. on a CDN somewhere?

Yeah, we need to figure out the licensing. I will start that conversation internally.

The problem you might be having with your 3rd party lib is that it must export a variable to the global namespace (and not, for example, window). One library I used (D3) did this, but one that we used (AWS) did not, and we had to modify it. This is required because your code will run inside a web worker.

Copy that, thanks Jeff. :smile:
