On September 16th, dbt_artifacts v2.0.0 was published. This is a major version release that we are really excited about as it adds more support for users and for contributors.
What is dbt_artifacts?
dbt_artifacts is a package for modeling a dbt project and its run metadata. It includes the following models to help you understand the current state of a dbt project and its performance over time.
It has many use cases, from identifying flakey tests to understanding the slowest running models for performance optimization.
Going from version 1.0.0 to 2.0.0 added the following major features:
- Support for `dbt-spark` adapter
- Support for `dbt-bigquery` adapter
- Source tables are now dbt models which means that new columns can be easily released in new versions, and dbt automatically will add them to the tables on the next run.
See here for the full list of releases, features and fixes since v1.0.0.
If you're an existing dbt_artifacts user, there's a straightforward process for migrating to v2, check it out here.
Have fun, and happy data modeling!
