Packaging python toolboxes with a Pro Add-In

Quite a vague question here but interested to hear some thoughts from ESRI and the community.. 


I have vague plans to move portions of our existing .NET SDK business logic into Python toolboxes for ease of distribution and sharing code between desktop and online. Also integration with the GP framework is a big plus.


Just wondering if there are any recommended practices I should follow here and if this approach is recommended at all.

Is there a standard way of distributing toolboxes within add-ins? Would they need to be packaged and distributed separately?


Or is there another recommended approach I should take entirely if I want to "share" query logic between my desktop and online apps? Are toolboxes the way to go?
