I would also love to make it straightforward to separate the metrics themselves from the rest of the
config.yml
file (esp. the data source settings) - I'm imagining we'd want to back the metrics themselves in a git repo (but without secrets like what's in the data sources), and eventually I'd imagine we'd want to integrate a more general metrics layer like dbt is building.

We do support environment variables in config.yml, so you don't need to commit secrets to version control.
Copy code
params:
      user: ${POSTGRES_USER}
      password: ${POSTGRES_PW}
      ...

do you have a metric layer currently? do you use the dbt one?

One data scientist started spinning up something home grown, but we're likely to start using dbt's once it's a bit more mature (we're just starting a transition to using dbt at all)
but we aren't heavily using a metrics layer at this point.
thanks Jeremy! Will implement the env variables so I can push this to a repo 🙂
