Malloy's Features

  • Queries compile to SQL, optimized for your database
  • Computations are modular, composable, reusable, and extendable in ways that are consistent with modern programming paradigms
  • Excels at querying and producing nested data sets
  • The fan and chasm traps are solved, making it possible to aggregate anything in one query and reducing the need for fact tables and overly complex SQL
  • Defaults are smart, and the language is concise (where SQL is verbose and often redundant)
