I have a very basic question. How can I include my own packages, I.e packages that I wrote myself, into a sage notebook. I am using the notebook environment. So far I have only used Mathematica where I can just load a file filename.m into any notebook.

What is the path were I have to put my own package and what is the format in which I have to save my package (.sws, .sage, py...)? What is the command I have to use to include the file? An example would be very helpful. Again I would like to do everything in the notebook environment.

Thanks for your help.

Note that the path in the load function could also be a URL, so you can put your file on the web and use it from any notebook. I do this in to load library files directly from my github repository.

Thanks a lot for your quick replies. I saved my file as a .sage-file and I can load it successfully into my notebook.

Sage is fun!
