IObox is a collection of Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) utilities for ERMrest+Hatrac.
The utilities in this project are generally categorized under extract, transform, or load.
- Extract: These utilities connect to a data source (or read from a file) and generate a data "bag".
- Transform: These utilities take a "bag" run transformations and output an updated "bag".
- Load: These utilities take a "bag" and load it into a data sink.
The data format produced by, transformed by, or consumed by the IObox utilities is described in the data package specification (draft).
