Dbt is usefull library for dwh to create a datamart or datamarts. You can find all details in dbt official pages.
I used a few times, so i can clarify for you how you can create a dbt models and dbt configs in your own project, you can do that like below step by steps;
1 – Create a profiles.yml file for DBT Profile. Specify your db connection information etc.
2 – Create a data_model folder like project_dir
3 – Create a .yml file for main project .yml file and you will call it like project_file
4 – Create your own dbt_runner file like dbt_runner.py and set it your execution configs
5 – Create a model folder, you will put your models in that folder
6 – Create a schema or model for yourself and put into that folder a xxxx.schema.yml file
6.1 – Put some table value like below;
In the end, you will have like below folder and schema;
# DBT Profile. Specify your DB connection information etc.
profiles.yml on the root directory
dbt_runner.py python file
> specification of your models bietl
> sql files for using.sql
I’m executing that dbt in airflow das but I didn’t mention it, maybe in next post.
