27/09/21 Roundup - There are 10 kinds of people in this world

There are 10 kinds of people in this world… those who understand binary and those who don’t.

Latest Product Updates

Below are some of the latest updates we’ve been making to Lightdash:

:telescope: Lightdash works even when not all your models are ready

We now compile all your explores individually so if there is an error with one, you can still use Lightdash for all the others. The UI will highlight any explores where there were errors with compiling so you can easily spot them.

:test_tube: We’ve added support for dbt projects in GitLab

Got your dbt projects on GitLab? Now we’ve got you covered, simple!

:wrench: You can edit your project settings in Lightdash

The first of a few updates coming to make it easier to manage Lightdash - you can now see your dbt connection details in Lightdash and update your connection settings directly in the app.

:abacus: Table calculations demo

Check out Oliver’s demo of one of our most requested features, table calculations where he walks through some examples of why this is so powerful for our users!
