Hi @Rashida Kanchwala I saw on the Kedro Showcase from October that you are starting to do some planning for Kedro viz development. I'd love to participate if possible. We think kedro viz is a great tool for us to communicate with 'non-technical' stakeholders. For us, one key feature/requirement would be to extend the types of information that can be displayed in the sidebar about a dataset or the intuition behind a node. For example, for each dataset, we store a yaml file with metadata about the dataset. We might want to read in a few choice fields from that file, display a description of the dataset, or even simply being able to display a url to our docs page, where each dataset will basically have its own page.
Yes indeed, Merel is correct! This ticket will track an addition to the sidebar (aka metadata panel) in which we'll aim to allow users to preview the contents of a dataset.
If you'd like to see anything else added to the sidebar, it would be amazing if you could add a comment to that ticket or even create a new feature request ☺️ happy to discuss it further here, too.

Hi, sorry I missed this...Indeed, this is very close to what we are looking for. I do think it would be nice if we could add a url and a text description. We envision using kedro viz not just for the analytics and engineer crowd but as a visual aid when interacting with our more 'non-technical' stakeholders. I'm sort of imagining the 'show code' button for function nodes, but for datasets.
