Lightdash: An open source alternative to Looker built using dbt.


Lightdash removes the gap between your data transformation layer and your data visualization layer. It enables data analysts and engineers to control all of their business intelligence (data transformations/business logic as well as data visualization) in a single place.
Lightdash integrates with your dbt project and gives a framework for defining metrics and specifying joins between models all within your existing dbt YAML files. The data output from your dbt project is then available for exploring and sharing in Lightdash.

Love this type of open experimentation! The product is pretty nascent but the public demo experience is quite solid (no signup required). Need to learn more about this, I haven't met the folks involved. Reach out if you're connected!
