    I would use something like meltano or airbyte, but if you really want to use Lambda for extraction I'd say there is no point spinning up a Redshift cluster just for that, Athena would be the way to go and you can use dbt pretty nicely with it and it would keep costs down.

    Airbyte and Singer/Meltano if you want to learn more about ingestion pipelines. Airbyte and Meltano teams are very welcoming. SQLfluff a shiny SQL linter. Beautiful project with awesome maintainers.

    I know really sure if this is what are you looking for, but take a look at Meltano

    I'm not aware of any. I did just open this issue[0] in the Meltano project to open discussion with the team/community. It could be an interesting iteration on the Singer Spec[1] if we find that users are interested in it and it helps solve some bottleneck challenges.

    At the same time, we have been working with some members of the community on a new framework for building taps and targets:, which we have decided to call the Singer SDK: We are moving as many Singer specification-specific details around things like incremental state replication and stream/field selection into the framework, so that individual taps only need to worry about getting the data from the source and can be expected to behave more consistently and correctly across the board.

    Good point! As expected, there's an issue about adding it already:

    I've fixed it: Should go live shortly.

    Lastly, we recently put up a list of Implementation Partners on the Meltano website, which so far lists 7 consultancies that have adopted the Meltano+Singer standard, including multi-nationals with significant engineering resources dedicated to internal tools. A few of them had found Singer before Meltano and built their own tooling around Singer, but decided after finding Meltano to join the party and collaborate with us on better tooling and connectors we can all benefit from. The upcoming Singer SDK (background) is an example of such a collaboration with Slalom.

  • Launch HN: Airbyte (YC W20) – Open-Source ELT (Fivetran/Stitch Alternative)

    At GitLab, we're not ready to give up on the Singer spec, community, and ecosystem yet, which is why I've been working on Meltano for the past year:

    We think that the biggest things holding back Singer are the lack of documentation and tooling around taking existing taps and targets to production, and around building, debugging, maintaining, and testing new or existing high-quality taps and targets.

    Meltano itself addresses the first problem, and provides a robust and reliable platform for building, running & orchestrating Singer- and dbt-based ELT pipelines.

    At the same time, we have been working with some members of the community on a new framework for building taps and targets:, which we have decided to call the Singer SDK:
