Advised way of importing libraries

See original GitHub issue

I was wondering how you can import libraries other than the ones imported by default by Belay. I’ve made a @device.task def setup(): function which works well, but is that the intended way? As a side note I’m awaiting Micropython v1.20 which includes mip (so you should be able to install using mip install <package> if I’ve understood correctly). Maybe it would be a nice addition to have a “installing and importing libraries” section in the documentation?

The package manager is already dawning on me. I really really like it! However, I’m a bit confused by:

Belay assumes your project contains a python-package with the same name as located in the root of your project.

Does that mean you cannot have just a pyproject.toml file, the python script and nothing else in a repo? (except for the autogenerated .belay-lib).

Edit: I’ll make a separate issue for discussion of the package manager.

@roaldarbol checkout #54 and provide feedback in the PR. I’m going to close this issue for now.
