Command-line utility for creating Dataflow projects

Project description

dataflow-cookiecutter Build Status

Tired of copy-pasting your ad-hoc Dataflow modules? Then you can use this cookiecutter command-line tool to easily generate standardized Dataflow templates! :zap:


You can install dataflow-cookiecutter from PyPI:

pip install dataflow-cookiecutter

In addition, you can also clone this repository and install it locally:

git clone
cd dataflow-cookiecutter
python3 install


You can create a Dataflow project by executing the command:

$ dataflow-cookiecutter new

You can also use some of the premade templates. Say, you wish to create a Google Cloud Storage (GCS) to BigQuery (BQ) pipeline:

$ dataflow-cookiecuter new --template=GCSToBQ

In addition, you can use your trusty, old cookiecutter command-line tool to generate templates (only works for cookiecutter>=1.7.1):

cookiecutter \
   --directory <directory-to-desired-template> 


  • Why are you still wrapping cookiecutter? This started as a learning project and I want to see how cookiecutter's internals work. In addition, I realized I can add more functionality to the CLI more than templating, so wrapping Cookiecutter seems to be a good approach.
  • I already have cookiecutter, can I use it with your templates? Yes of course! Look at the Usage section above! However, ensure that your cookecutter version is >=1.7.1 so that you can use the --directory flag!
