DuckDB support

Are there any plans to support DuckDB (https://duckdb.org) or workarounds folks might have to query a duckdb database using metabase?

Hi @littlegoblin
We would depend on the community to create a driver. Since there's a JDBC driver, then it should be possible to create a driver for Metabase with a little work:

@littlegoblin - did you do any further investigation or possibly create a DuckDB driver?

I am super interested in seeing is DuckDB could help me reduce some of my cloud costs (Postgres Server & Storage).

@ChrisH Someone has created a DuckDB driver: https://github.com//AlexR2D2/metabase_duckdb_driver
