An orchestration platform for the development, production, and observation of data assets.

Dagster lets you define jobs in terms of the data flow between reusable, logical components, then test locally and run anywhere. With a unified view of jobs and the assets they produce, Dagster can schedule and orchestrate Pandas, Spark, SQL, or anything else that Python can invoke.

Dagster is designed for data platform engineers, data engineers, and full-stack data scientists. Building a data platform with Dagster makes your stakeholders more independent and your systems more robust. Developing data pipelines with Dagster makes testing easier and deploying faster.

Develop and test locally, then deploy anywhere

With Dagster’s pluggable execution, the same computations can run in-process against your local file system, or on a distributed work queue against your production data lake. You can set up Dagster’s web interface in a minute on your laptop, deploy it on-premise, or in any cloud.

Model and type the data produced and consumed by each step

Dagster models data dependencies between steps in your orchestration graph and handles passing data between them. Optional typing on inputs and outputs helps catch bugs early.

Link data to computations

Dagster’s Asset Manager tracks the data sets and ML models produced by your jobs, so you can understand how they were generated and trace issues when they don’t look how you expect.

Build a self-service data platform

Dagster helps platform teams build systems for data practitioners. Jobs are built from shared, reusable, configurable data processing and infrastructure components. Dagit, Dagster’s web interface, lets anyone inspect these objects and discover how to use them.

Avoid dependency nightmares

Dagster’s repository model lets you isolate codebases so that problems in one job don’t bring down the rest. Each job can have its own package dependencies and Python version. Jobs are run in isolated processes so user code issues can't bring the system down.

Debug pipelines from a rich UI

Dagit, Dagster’s web interface, includes expansive facilities for understanding the jobs it orchestrates. When inspecting a run of your job, you can query over logs, discover the most time consuming tasks via a Gantt chart, re-execute subsets of steps, and more.

Getting Started


Dagster is available on PyPI, and officially supports Python 3.6+.

$ pip install dagster dagit

This installs two modules:

  • Dagster: the core programming model and abstraction stack; stateless, single-node, single-process and multi-process execution engines; and a CLI tool for driving those engines.
  • Dagit: the UI for developing and operating Dagster pipelines, including a DAG browser, a type-aware config editor, and a live execution interface.
