Snowplow Micro 1.4.0 and 1.5.0 + new getting started guide

Snowplow Micro has long lived in the shadow of its bigger cousin, Snowplow Mini. But it’s a very handy tool, and we think more people should use it!

If you haven’t heard of Micro before, check out the brand new getting started guide: Setting up Snowplow Micro locally | Snowplow Documentation. Even if you are a seasoned Micro user, you might discover some tips and tricks.

In the last two releases we’ve added a few useful features.

New in 1.5.0. Easily connect to a custom Iglu registry with just 2 environment variables

docker run -p 9090:9090 \

No need for configuration files. (Docs)

New in 1.4.0. When running Micro on the command line, easily see basic event details in the logs
