Do people still care about dummy inputs / outputs when there is need to force Kedro execute node in a specific order? https://github.com/kedro-org/kedro/discussions/3758

yes I think it's a crucial workaround until there's a better solution, I know @Alex Ferrero and team use this

Was planning to do a half knowledge sharing+ tech design but no hurry for this since most people accept that Kedro don’t have a nice way to deal with this.

it doesn’t by design
but i think it’s clear we see the user value now

Why not let people influence the topological sort in some way? Not so that it violates any constraints, but there are sub-parts of the DAG where some kind of
__gt__
/
__lt__
comparison might be possible on nodes?

@Ben Horsburgh can you elaborate on the last sentence? The discussion is indeed proposing to open up some ways of changing the order when there are multiplies solutions available, as toposort give one valid solve only.

I have a good idea - let me write up an example in issue over the weekend 🙂
