Hello from the dbt Docs team: @mirnawong1, @matthewshaver, @nghi-ly, and @runleonarun! First, we’d like to thank the 13 new community contributors to docs.getdbt.com!
Here's what's new to docs.getdbt.com in May:
- We made sure everyone knows that Cloud-users don’t need a profiles.yml file by adding a callout on several key pages.
- Fleshed out the model jinja variable page, which originally lacked conceptual info and didn’t link to the schema page.
- Added a new Quickstarts landing page. This new format sets up for future iterations that will include filtering! But for now, we are excited you can step through quickstarts in a focused way.
☁ Cloud projects
- We launched dbt Cloud IDE user interface doc, which provides a thorough walkthrough of the IDE UI elements and their definitions.
- Launched a sparkling new dbt Cloud Scheduler page ✨! We went from previously having little content around the scheduler to a subsection that breaks down the awesome scheduler features and how it works.
- Updated the dbt Cloud user license page to clarify how to add or remove cloud users.
- Shipped these Discovery API docs to coincide with the launch of the Discovery API:
🎯 Core projects
- See what’s coming up in Core v 1.6!
- We turned the
profiles.ymlpage into a landing page, added more context to profile.yml page, and moved the ‘About CLI’ higher up in the
Set up dbtsection.
