dbt v3.1.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-10-08 // almost 2 years ago
  • โž• Adds ability to load boilerplate templates from base64 encoded text.

    ๐Ÿ“‡ To utilize, build like go build -ldflags "-X github.com/nikogura/dbt/pkg/dbt.METADATA_TEMPLATE=${METADATA_TEMPLATE}" to override included metadata template for producing metadata.json with dbt boilerplate gen.

    ๐Ÿ“‡ Can be done via gomason >= 2.2.6 by including "-X github.com/nikogura/dbt/pkg/dbt.METADATA_TEMPLATE=${METADATA_TEMPLATE}" in each build target inmetadata.json`

    ๐Ÿšง This method of customizing the boilerplate templates is crude, but is less involved than hacking the source code directly. It arguably will allow for easier maintenance of forks.
