Debugging/Testing Custom Materializations

The problem I’m having

I’m trying to develop a custom materialization and I’m trying to find a way to compile the materialization code without running it.

The context of why I’m trying to do this

My materialization is going to have a fair amount of logic to creating the statements and I’d like to be able to view see what dbt is generating without it actually executing.

I’m looking for an answer to this as well. I didn’t see anything about it in the documentation, or in dbt compile --help.
