The Notebook Now Supports Local Data Imports

Introducing support for uploading data not stored in the cloud.

Rel supports importing data from the cloud, such as from S3 buckets. Our How-To Guides describe the process of importing cloud-based CSV or JSON data. However, if you have a local file, there is currently no way to specify a local file path and upload that data into a database using Rel.

RelationalAI’s notebook now provides a user interface to upload locally stored data and assign it to a relation in your database. You can use the browser to upload a file from your computer, and then follow the usual CSV/JSON import patterns.

With the new notebook update, the ability to access and import local data into your database is provided. To get started, go to Working with RelationalAI Notebooks.
