Dynamic DAGs in Apache Airflow

Reading Time: 4 minutes Airflow dynamic DAGs can save you a ton of time. As you know, Apache Airflow is written in Python, and DAGs are created via Python scripts. That makes it very flexible and powerful (even complex sometimes). By leveraging Python, you can create DAGs dynamically based on variables, connections, a typical pattern, etc. This very nice way of generating DAGs comes at the price of higher Continue Reading

Apache Airflow: DAG Structure and Data Pipeline

Reading Time: 6 minutes What is a DAG in Apache Airflow? In this blog, we are going to see what is the basic structure of DAG in Apache Airflow and we will also Configure our first Data pipeline. A DAG in apache airflow stands for Directed Acyclic Graph which means it is a graph with nodes, directed edges, and no cycles. An Apache Airflow DAG is a data pipeline Continue Reading

In simple terms, it is a graph with nodes, directed edges and no cycles. Basically, this is a DAG: We will learn step by step how to write your first DAG. Steps to Continue Reading

Apache Airflow: Write your first DAG in Apache Airflow

Reading Time: 3 minutes In this article, we’ll see how to write a basic “Hello World” DAG in Apache Airflow. We will go through all the files that we have to create in Apache Airflow to successfully write and execute our first DAG. Create a Python file Firstly, we will create a python file inside the “airflow/dags” directory. Since we are creating a basic Hello World script, we will Continue Reading

It Continue Reading

Running Apache Airflow DAG with Docker

Reading Time: 3 minutes In this blog, we are going to run the sample dynamic DAG using docker. Before that, let’s get a quick idea about the airflow and some of its terms. What is Airflow? Airflow is a workflow engine which is responsible for managing and scheduling running jobs and data pipelines. It ensures that the jobs are ordered correctly based on dependencies and also manages the allocation Continue Reading

Defining your workflow: Why Not Airflow?

Reading Time: 4 minutes What is Apache Airflow? Airflow is a platform to programmatically author, schedule & monitor workflows or data pipelines. These functions achieved with Directed Acyclic Graphs (DAG) of the tasks. It is an open-source and still in the incubator stage. It was initialized in 2014 under the umbrella of Airbnb since then it got an excellent reputation with approximately 800 contributors on GitHub and 13000 stars. Continue Reading
