Best way to maintain a common file?

Trying to figure out the cleanest way to have a shared functions file across multiple projects. seems like there isn’t an easy way. I’ve found 2 options.

  1. Add a custom.ts and then copy that around to other projects.

  2. Create a project with all of the function in it inside a namespace i.e.
    namespace common {
    // code
    }
    Save the code then in a new project where they want to use that code select extensions and then selected the common uf2 file.

Both options feel prone to mistakes (especial having 11-14 year old kids doing it). I think a feature of being able to add a common.ts just like custom.ts would be nice. I’ve tried hand editing the pxt.json but doesn’t seem to allow referencing any files outside of the current location.

One way to do this is by using our Github support! More information on it can be found here: https://makecode.com/extensions/github-authoring

We are actively working on integrate support for GitHub and authoring a project with multiple collaborators (using the traditional, commit/merge/branch flows). Unfortunately, it is not yet available in LEGO.
