Loading Sense script files from GitHub?

Wouldn't it be handy if you could write this in your load script:

$(Must_Include=lib://github_repository/my_script_file.qvs);

As far as I can tell it is not possible though. Or? Has anyone gotten this to work?

If it works, it would then be trivial to store load script .qvs files in Github (or some other source control tool), then load it straight from there into Sense.

Anyone from Qlik here to note this on the wish list?

Hi mountaindude‌! A year later and I see this post because I am exploring ways to do something sort of similar.

I am not aware of how to accomplish this.

There is an "Innovation request" for this from 2 years ago... (looking for the sloth emoji )  I added a link to this post there. Tack!

Hej Tyler, long time no talk!

I solved it by adding an endpoint to the Butler middleware (available on

github). Works really well.

Yup, that might also do the trick.
