Shared libraries in recipes and notebooks

Shared libraries in recipes and notebooks
Is it possible to use a project level shared python library and global shared library with the same name in a python recipe/notebook.

How does DSS resolves different versions of the same function?

If you create a project-level python library with the same name as a global-level python library, the global-level will be used. Hence it is best to have different names for python files and/or directory structure at project-level and global-level.

Since you can have a directory structure in these libraries, you can define your own submodule structure to customize the name resolution. For instance, you can create a directory named "global_lib" inside the global python-lib directory. You could then advise users to put all global-level library files inside the former directory. Then from a Python notebook inside a project, they would reference the global module with:

from import bar
