is there a way in dagster to get user input at runtime? For example using input function of python

The python code is happening off in the background so not really. You would specify that information as inputs to the run

thanks. But i didn't get what "inputs to the run" means. Can you please explain or guide me?

When you start a run, you can specify configuration data. There's a few options you can use for this kind of thing. The simplest option is to use solid config and set them for the required solids.
Another more complex option is to use the Dagster resource system

what kind of user input were you thinking of? (ie a string, list, a function, something else?)
