Hello everyone, could you clarify if it possible to load
SourceAsset
values outside of Dagster runs? I have a source asset with a custom IOManager and I would like to load data in a Jupyter notebook for an explorative analysis. I try to use an approach as discussed here: https://docs.dagster.io/concepts/assets/software-defined-assets#loading-asset-values-outside-of-dagster-runs, but it fails because the source asset is not registered in
loader._assets_defs_by_key
as I can see with:
Copy code
with repository.get_asset_value_loader() as loader:
    print(loader._assets_defs_by_key)
c
hmm we should probably be able to allow this, or at least error more gracefully. I see you put up an issue, appreciated
