Rill Developer (tech preview)

Rill Developer is a tool that makes it effortless to transform your datasets with SQL and create powerful, opinionated dashboards. Rill Developer follows a few guiding principles:

  • feels good to use – powered by Sveltekit & DuckDB = conversation-fast, not wait-ten-seconds-for-result-set fast
  • works with your local datasets – imports and exports Parquet and CSV
  • no more data analysis "side-quests" – helps you build intuition about your dataset through automatic profiling
  • no "run query" button required – responds to each keystroke by re-profiling the resulting dataset
  • radically simple dashboards - thoughtful, opinionated defaults to help you quickly derive insights from your data

It's best to show and not tell, so here's a little preview of Rill Developer:
