  • Install Airflow 2 on a Raspberry Pi (using Python 3.x) | 2021-07-22
    Go to Airflow's github repo and download the airflow-webserver.service and the airflow-scheduler.service
  • That one question again: an alternative to Jenkins? | 2021-07-05
    Circle CI has positioned themselves as a modern Jenkins replacement, but I should note I haven't seen them used over a long period of time which is the real measure of quality. Honestly most pipelines seem to be better suited to workflow frameworks like Apache Airflow than these CI/CD specific tools, they may be a little harder to learn up front but they seem to be more resilient to the type of customization that usually gets you in trouble with Jenkins down the line.
  • Occasional "No such file" errors even though file exists when trying to wget files from FTP? | 2021-06-22
    Occasionally, we get "No such file" errors, even though the file does exist on the FTP server (when inspecting via FTP GUI), when trying to import. Note, this does not happen all the time nor for the same files each time. For context, we have an airflow ( scheduled process (running on "local" executor mode) that imports multiple TSV files from an FTP server in a multithreaded manner in pools of 3 at a time.
  • New to data orchestration? Start here. | 2021-06-02
    First-generation data orchestration tools like Airflow are primarily focused on improving usability for data scientists with the introduction of Python support (vs previous tools that required queries to be written in JSON and YAML). This improved UI made it easier for data teams to manage their pipeline flows without getting as caught up in the process.
  • BigQueryInsertJobOperator missing required authentication credential. Expected OAuth 2 access token, login cookie or other valid authentication credential.
    u/The_Fog_Bandit OK, now I'm wondering if the issue is actual something else. Because in my logs, it says "Required parameter is missing" . I assumed its the oauth2 because when I click on the link in my logs it says required oauth2 missing, but perhaps that's not the error message that pertains to my DAG issue, it just populates because I haven't entered in credentials to access that link?! but I followed this:
  • Docker Swarm cron job manager | 2021-05-28
    I came across as I think is a bit overkill for my needs.

  • What are the differences between Astronomer's airflow chart and the community one? Which one is better?
    There's also Airflow's official Helm chart -
  • airflow.exceptions.AirflowException: Argument ['configuration'] is required
    The error message, which you've correctly read, points at line 64 as the place that's an issue. The error also says Argument ['configuration'] is required, so you haven't provided an argument when calling something. Given that the error notes BigQueryInsertJobOperator, you can check the source code to see what's expected.
    u/The_Fog_Bandit oh shoot! Im sorry you're right! we were previously using the BigQueryOperator class, and I incorrectly change it to BigQueryInsertJobOperator but it should have been BigQueryExecuteQueryOperator I honestly don't know why I thought it was BigQueryInsertJobOperator thank you so much for taking a look at my question and answering it, I would have used the wrong operator!
  • Airflow 404 = lots of circles
    I checked the config file example for airflow here and it matches:
  • '' is not a package
    That file you've pointed to isn't telling you to do what you've done:
  • Im making a FME open source clone | 2021-05-05
    I have heard good things about Apache Airflow, so maybe developing GIS plugins/extensions to that might have a broader reach:
  • Do you know any Python projects on Github that are examples of best practices and good architecture?
    This repo doesn't have a main function, so it's not supposed to run by itself, but instead is a pipeline for Apache Airflow. But that isn't what makes this code good.
