  1. Offline Queries
  2. SQL Interface

Chalk is testing a direct SQL query interface for your feature values. Feature classes function like SQL tables in this model, and has-one relationships and has-many relationships can be used as joins to other feature tables.

Chalk’s interface supports read-only ANSI-SQL queries to your offline feature store. For example, if you have the feature classes:

class User:
    uid: str
    full_name: str

class Transfer:
    uid: str
    amount_cents: str
    user: User

You can join across feature classes and select data from them:

SELECT transfer.amount_cents, user.full_name
FROM transfer
JOIN user
ON user.uid = transfer.uid

This allows you to use computed features directly in BI dashboards and for analytics use-cases.
