Meltano Weekly Demo Day: 2019-04-26

In Friday’s Demo Day, Micael showed improvements to `meltano select` to improve filtering for the ELT step, clarifying the reporting of what’s happening. Thank you to community member Rob Moore for this suggestion!

Ben showcased the integration of Algolia to power our documentation search, making it easier for you to find what you’re looking for.

Derek showed the v2 iterating of entity selection, the step after installing an extractor where you can choose which data points you want Meltano to import into your project. This is especially important for APIs like Salesforce, which has over 300 entities to select from.

Meltano Weekly Demo Day: 2019-04-19 + Meltano UI Improvement Deep Dive

In Friday’s Demo Day we showed updates to our marketing website and documentation to highlight the different data sources Meltano connects to. We also took a look at the latest UI improvements, which are live with this week’s 0.22 release.

With this week’s release I had some time to deep dive with Derek on the UI a bit more. We decided to go ahead and ship it, even though we still have a lot of work left to do. In the video below you can hear our discussion of how to approach the next features and improvements.

Meltano Weekly Demo Day: 2019-04-12

In Friday’s Demo Day we show an end-to-end demo using Meltano to run the ETL, pulling data from several SaaS tools, and then showing what is possible with our pre-made “out of the box” transforms, which now ship with Meltano.

We also dug into a conversation exploring whether users will benefit from having separate “projects” or workspaces. This seems like an important thing for collaboration, but is also potentially a feature that is a bit too early in the lifecycle of Meltano given how few users we have.

As always, we welcome your feedback here in the comments as well as in our Meltano Slack community or as an issue in the Meltano project itself.

Meltano 0.19 Released

We are thrilled to release so many improvements to Meltano this week, with a special focus on bringing greater feature parity between the Command Line Interface (CLI) and the User Interface (UI). Our vision for Meltano spans many roles in a company, often involving cross-team collaboration of a data engineer and a data analyst. Through these improvements, and many more coming in the next few weeks, we look forward to meeting our users where they’re already getting work done every day.
