due to SQLAlchemy < 2.0 for dagster, I've tried to create use a separate control-plane (dagster) and data-plane (ibis, duckdb, bunch of stuff). I am writing a custom IOManager that needs stuff in the data-plane virtual environment. however, since this has to be imported by dagster to setup the Definition, I'm getting an import error is this a known issue or is there some workaround? (I am new to dagster)
so I have two venvs,
with just dagster/dagit installed, and
with everything else
Copy code
The above exception was caused by the following exception:

I don't really see a way for them to not coexist because I need
from dagster import ConfigurableIOManager
import ibis
in the same Python file
yeah I don't think you can natively execute ops in an environment which doesn't have dagster installed, because the op itself (as well as IO manager) is a dagster construct. if you need to execute fully separated code like this you'll need to go down the route of launching an external job on k8s, ECS, or docker, and having your op monitor the job for completion
