Does dbt-cloud work with DuckDB?

The problem I’m having

I want to configure my dbt-cloud profile to work with a local DuckDB instance (and maybe eventually an instance on an EC2 machine), but right now I can’t find any documentation on how to get started.

The context of why I’m trying to do this

Just dipping my toes in the dbt pool right now. I’ve completed the Fundamentals course using a trial SnowFlake account, but now I’d like test it out using DuckDB. I’ve found a demo online, which is super helpful, but it’s only focused on using dbt-core. Question is, does the dbt-cloud platform work with DuckDB given that it’s not cloud-based? The GUI/IDE is super nifty and I want to take advantage of it as much as possible, but right now it’s not really clear to me how to get started.

What I’ve already tried

Modifying my project details for Partner Connect Trial.
