Snaplet has four operations for manipulating the data in a snapshot:
- Transform: Make existing data suitable for development by transforming the original value into a new one
- Exclude: Remove data in specific tables
- Sample (Subset): Capture a sample of data whilst keeping referential integrity intact
- Generate: Seed values when you don't have any data
Snaplet CLI runs Node v14. When run locally the Transformation Functions can import any 3rd party modules, can communicate over the network, and have zero restrictions.
When run in Snaplet Cloud we enable the
SNAPLET_SAFE_MODE environmental variable and the Transformation Function can only import from
@snaplet/copycat, are limited to a 10 second runtime, have no network, or disk access.
