Cute cat explaining software tool that creates transformed copies of your production database
Quit writing seed scripts, start shipping features
Get production-accurate data and preview databases to code against, fast.
Loved by typescript developers around the world

Your dev-env matches production. Why not do the same with the data?

The most common ways to get data in your dev-env is to copy production data, or write seed scripts. Both suck!

Copying production data means copying private data, and wiring together different bits of infrastructure is complicated.

Seed scripts take a lot of time to write and maintain, they’re a small sample of data, and basically inaccurate.

Snaplet improves the entire workflow.
Snappy, the cute dev cat needs data to code against but doesn't want to write seed scripts or make a database dump

We’re still figuring things out.
Whilst in open beta,
we’re totally free.
We want to launch these key features before we start charging:
1. Scheduled snapshot capture
2. Restore to data target-cloud database
3. Pre-bake docker containers
4. Self-hosted snapshot capturers
We’re anticipating a per-developer pricing model for teams, so each member of your team that uses the CLI will pay a flat-monthly fee of $10 USD per developer.
