Extra files for one deployment

If your deployment depends on one or two helper files you can include them in your deployment with the extra_files parameter.

For example, if you use import utils to access the code within a utils.py, you can include the utils.py file when you run mb.deploy:

import utils # stored at ./utils.py

def my_function(...):
return utils.example()

mb.deploy(my_function, extra_files=["utils.py"])

If utils.py is in a different directory but is still importable as import utils, then remap the filepath when deploying:

mb.deploy(my_function, extra_files={ "path/to/utils.py": "utils.py" })

For more information on using extra_files, see the API reference for extra_files.

When multiple deployments need these files‚Äč

Instead of using extra_files for code that'll be shared between deployments, use common files. Common files are files made available to all deployments.
