Understanding import_folder

Why import_folder exists

By default, it is not secure to give Dash app users access to the entire file system of the server that is running the Dash application.

As such, app authors have the ability to configure exactly which files users have access to by passing a folder that users have access to, through the import_folder parameter.

Note that users will have access to all folders and files inside of the import_folder recursively.
