Hi, wondering if it's possible to connect redash to Snowflake?

We don't have an existing query runner for it, but it should be possible (and easy) to create one. IIRC, they have a Python library.
I can give guidance on what to do if you know Python.

yes, I know some python. They also have a JDBC driver if redash supports that type of connection

nope, we don't :| but I think they have a proper python driver so no need for jdbc

You implement the run_query method which basically takes the query text, connect to the db, runs it and converts the results to our format.

And optionally _get_tables to get the schema.

nice, I know some people from Snowflake that could probably write this and send a PR
