Tinybird instructions

To prepare the Tinybird database, follow these steps:

  1. We use pipenv to manage my Python dependencies. If you don't have it installed, you can install it using the following command:
    pkgx pipenv
  2. Download the Tinybird CLI from here and install it on your system.
  3. After authenticating with the Tinybird CLI, navigate to the lib/tinybird directory:
    cd lib/tinybird
  4. Push the necessary datasources using the following command:
    tb push datasources/*
    tb push endpoints/get_*
  5. Don't forget to set the TINYBIRD_TOKEN with the appropriate rights in your .env file.
