Composable filesystem hooks and operators for Airflow.

Project description


airflow-fs is Python package that provides hooks and operators for manipulating files across a variety of file systems using Apache Airflow.

Why airflow-fs?

Airflow-fs implements a single interface for different file system hooks, in contrast to Airflows builtin file system hooks/operators. This approach allows us to interact with files independently of the underlying file system, using a common set of operators for performing general operations such as copying and deleting files.

Currently, airflow-fs supports the following file systems: local, FTP, HDFS, S3 and SFTP. Support for additional file systems can be added by implementing an additional file system hook that adheres to the required hook interface. See the documentation for more details.
