Welcome to SQVID’s documentation!¶
SQVID, the Simple sQl Validator of varIous Datasources is a framework for validating any type of data source that can be queried via SQL with SQLAlchemy.
It aims to be a simplified and extensible counterpart to validation of dbt models or data assertions of dataform that does not require you to use the full dbt or dataform and still ensure your data is automatically validated to be what you expect it to be. This allows SQVID to be used on all sorts of data sources: from CSVs and spreadsheets to massive databases.
You can easily use SQVID to serve as a “sanity check” of your processing pipeline or as a testing framework for your various ETL processes.
