DBT compile without db (snowflake) connectivity

The problem I’m having

I would like to run dbt compile on my project but without accessing the Snowflake database. I tried to run it, but it seems that dbt is trying to issue “SHOW TERSE OBJECTS in .” . Is it possible to avoid this, so basically to compile the projects with some defaults?

The context of why I’m trying to do this

The goal is to compile the project in an environment where no credentials or connectivity is available.

What I’ve already tried

Some example code or error messages

Put code inside backticks
  to preserve indentation
    which is especially important 
      for Python and YAML!
