Does Knapsack create run-time dependancies for my application?

Never! Knapsack functions at build-time, helping engineering teams across organizations of any size and spread access assets and resources efficiently as they build production applications. 

All code and data management performed by Knapsack is git-backed, and protocols and build processes are entirely up to your team, so you can lean into what's already working. 

If you were to stop using Knapsack or Knapsack were unavailable, you would still have your functioning code in your repo, managed your way.
