Does Dagit have a "dark theme"? Usecase - I like to embed Dagit into PyCharm whilst developed & debugging pipelines. I prefer using a dark IDE theme (in the screenshot I'm using Darcula); against which I find Dagit's white background a bit jarring.

How do you do that (embed in pycharm?)

@mrdavidlaing This appears to be a data warehouse transform/modeling workflow. Curious if you have used dbt (with or without Dagster) and if this particular use case was deemed more appropriate to be handled through Dagster instead of dbt, and if so - what was the limiting factor of dbt?

@Michael Sluyter I use the Embedded Web Browser plugin for PyCharm; start dagit in a Terminal & point the web browser window at
@DaveKalpak It is indeed a datalake -> datamart workflow. dbt would be the obvious choice for this except for the fact that I'm working against a self-hosted Impala cluster with fairly anaemic SQL functionality. There are several transformations I need to do that would be very difficult in any SQL dialect, and impossible in Impala. In these cases dagster's ability seamlessly integrate with other transformation tools (in my case Pandas) is the killer feature.
That said, I'm revisiting integrating dbt into dagster for my simpler usecases.
