get current dagster Definitions

In Dagster, definitions are the building blocks that you use to construct your data pipelines and workflows. These definitions include: - Pipelines: A pipeline is a set of solids that are connected by their inputs and outputs, forming a directed acyclic graph (DAG). - Solids: A solid is a unit of computation in a Dagster pipeline. Each solid has inputs, outputs, and a compute function that defines what the solid does. - Assets: Assets represent the data artifacts produced and consumed by solids. They are part of the Software-defined Asset abstraction, which allows you to define how data assets are computed, partitioned, and quality-checked. - Resources: Resources are reusable components that solids can use to interact with external systems like databases or cloud services. - Schedules and Sensors: These are used to automate pipeline execution. Schedules run pipelines at regular intervals, while sensors trigger pipeline runs based on external events. To get the current definitions in your Dagster environment, you typically look at the code where these components are defined. For example, you might have a Python module that defines your solids, pipelines, and assets. If you're using the Dagster UI (Dagit), you can also visualize and inspect these definitions. The documentation does not provide a direct command or function to "get current Dagster definitions" in a generic sense, as this would depend on the specifics of your Dagster setup and how you have organized your code. However, you can always review your codebase where you have defined these components or use the Dagster UI to explore the definitions that are loaded into your Dagster instance. If you are looking for a programmatic way to access these definitions, you would typically interact with the Dagster API in your Python code to retrieve information about your pipeline and its components. For example, you can use the
to access pipelines and solids, or the
class to query metadata about runs and assets. However, specific code examples for these interactions are not provided in the documentation excerpts available to me.
