With your profiles configured, you can now open an existing dbt Core® project or create a new one.

Open a Project#

If you already have a dbt Core® project on your computer, just click Open dbt Project and select the directory that has the dbt_project.yml in its root.

Create a Project#

Click Create dbt Project. Enter a name for your project, select the version of dbt Core® you wish to use, and then select a Profile and a Target. Click Generate New Project and choose a location on your computer to initialize the project.

Manage a Project#

The name of your active dbt Project will be shown at the top of the app. Clicking it will show you details about the project, allow you to close the project, or copy the project path or name.


In the near future you will be able to quickly jump between multiple dbt projects.

Set the active profile and target#

To the left of the active project is the active profile and target. Clicking that will allow you to change the profile and/or target as well as edit or refresh the contents of your profiles.yml.

Set the active dbt Core version#

dbt Core® is embedded directly inside the app - you don't need to download or maintain installations of various versions. To upgrade or downgrade, simply click the selector and choose a different version. If you don't already have that version, it will be downloaded.
