Meltastic by Meltano: December 2022 Edition


What happened in the Meltano universe in the last four weeks? The Meltano blog was filled with a couple of great articles, including the community’s favorite dbt packages and the community’s practices for extract and load.

We added a codespaces-powered Meltano demo, and much more!

Now, let’s jump into the details!

⭐Extracting trash from the ocean⭐

Most importantly, we’re extracting trash & transforming our waterways in December!

=> Just star ⭐⭐⭐ our Meltano repository to remove 2 lbs of trash for every star from the ocean. 

What got shipped?

We shipped two major releases and one minor one. Great features got added to Meltano, one of the biggest being support for remote state backend on S3, GCS, Azure or your local file system.

List of all releases:

  • v2.11.0 & v2.11.1 Add a `–force` flag to `meltano install` to ignore python version constraints from plugins. You can also now include environment variables inside pip urls for plugins to e.g. encode credentials or versions. 
  • Includes 2 community contributions (thanks to Quinn Batten and EMCP!)
  • v2.10.0 We’re very excited about this release, it enables you to host your state backend on all major object stores like AWS S3 or GCS. This means you can easily deploy Meltano to any managed orchestrator like prefect, dagster, airflow and have it work without having a large postgres instance ready.
  • Includes 1 community contribution (thanks to Daniel Walker!).
