We've launched a number of updates of our dbt™ Core integration, lifting a number of our limitations when we started the beta.


One of the most requested features was the ability to handle branching. Now, each user can work in whatever branch they want within your repository, with any change they make automatically synced back up to your repository. As part of this, we now also fully support all file operations, including creating, renaming, moving, and deleting files and folders within your file structure. Additionally, you can now set custom commit messages when you save a file.

Syncing dbt Documentation with Data Catalog

We now support a sync of your dbt documentation with your organization's Data Catalog. See the documentation you've written for your models show up in PopSQL and be available within autocomplete and the schema browser. Please contact us if you would like this feature enabled.

Specify dbt run args

When running a dbt model, you can now specify arguments to be passed to the dbt instance when we got to execute the model. These arguments are the same as you would expect to pass if you were using the dbt run cli command.
