Python ETL library

Project description


Build Status PyPI version Docs

Bamboo is a library intended to facilitate the process of creating extract, transform, and load (ETL) data pipelines. Bamboo includes many features such as the ability to download and cache HTTP assets, copy files from remote servers, run commands on remote servers, handle zipped archives, perform bulk database ingests and more.


pip install bamboo-lib

Additional Steps

If you will need to use the distributed locking functionality, you will need to install some additional software. Below are the instructions for macOS

Installing Sherlock on macOS.

brew install libmemcached

pip install pylibmc --install-option="--with-libmemcached=/usr/local/Cellar/libmemcached/1.0.18_2"

pip install sherlock

Running tests

To run the tests, simply run: pytest

Alternatively, if you would like to display all log/print statements run: pytest -s


To change the default folder where Bamboo will store HTTP downloads, set the BAMBOO_DOWNLOAD_FOLDER environment variable. By default, downloads will go to /tmp.

To change the default logger settings, set BAMBOO_LOGGER_CONF to point to a logging configuration file (see example in example/logging.conf).

Try setting:
