Hey Hacker News! Last week we made the codebase for product 100% open source. This week we shipped a dashboard to manage connectors, as well as integrations with Google Drive, Zendesk and Confluence. This means Sidekick is now the fastest way to sync data from these tools to a vector database.
Why is this important? For developers building LLM apps, data integrations are often the least interesting and most time consuming part of the process. For those that don’t want to roll their own ETL, Sidekick is an opinionated tool that lets them get an API endpoint to run semantic searches or generative Q&A over their own data in 5 minutes. In a future release, Sidekick will also handle data synchronization via polling/webhooks.
We use Weaviate’s vector database for the cloud version but plan to be vector database agonistic.
