Launch HN: Metaplane (YC W20) – Datadog for Data

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • lightdash

    An open source alternative to Looker built using dbt. Made for analysts ❤️

    1) An integration with Metabase Cloud is on our roadmap for Q1! We'd love to integrate with Lightdash, but they don't have a public API just yet[1].

    2) Several of our customers use us to alert on schema changes in Postgres, specifically so they can get ahead of application database changes that will end up in the warehouse, so you're definitely not alone! Here's a link on how to connect postgres:

    That's an excellent stack and one we kept front and center when building out Metaplane, so definitely let us know if you have any feedback or suggestions here!


  • DataProfiler

    What's in your data? Extract schema, statistics and entities from datasets

    My team has worked on a library for a similar purpose:

    Load any document, profile and monitor the profiles for changes that would impact downstream applications.

    Very common problem, you all are in a great space! Very interested and will check out!

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • superset

    Apache Superset is a Data Visualization and Data Exploration Platform

    Congrats on the launch! Any plans to integrate with Apache Superset?

  • zdbc

    A repository to provide abstracted jdbc access via ziti

    Congrats on the launch. Well done.

    another security approach is to enable your customers to close their inbound firewall ports and link listeners. this helps cloud and on prem models have far stronger security.

    example here (disclosure: i am a founder of the company behind this solution) with both open source and OEM/SaaS models: (code for one implementation - a wrapper around the JDBC drivers) (blog post with links to developer example video, whitepaper, etc)

  • Tailwind CSS

    A utility-first CSS framework for rapid UI development.

  • elementary-lineage

    Elementary is an open-source data observability framework for modern data teams, starting with data lineage.

    I recently stumbled on an open-source tool with a similar premise:
