    Unfortunately, in the current stage this is not possible. We have plans to support this in future releases. However currently we cannot commit to a particular time-frame or to the actual implementation.

    At the moment you can include your custom code in the code canvas and use it from within the cloud function. For instance:
    function doSomething() {
        return "Hello";
    Everlive.CloudFunction.onRequest(function(request, response, done){
       response.body = doSomething();

    Thus said you can include a small helper library and use it from the cloud function. Note that this may introduce some overhead in the cloud function's execution time which is limited. You can read more about these restrictions here.

    If you have further suggestions you may share them with us in our Feedback portal. The portal is constantly monitored and I can ensure you that we prioritize our development accordingly.

    Best regards,
