singer-tap-template

A cookiecutter template for creating Singer taps.

Usage

The best way to demonstrate creating your tap structure is with an example. Below I will initialize the "tap-foobar" project:

Start by installing cookiecutter:

$ pip install cookiecutter

The next command will ask for some input. Enter the name of your tap:

$ cookiecutter https://github.com/singer-io/singer-tap-template.git
project_name [e.g. 'tap-facebook']: tap-foobar

For the package_name, I just hit enter since tap_foobar is what I wanted:

package_name [tap_foobar]:

Now that the project exists, make a virtual environment:

$ cd tap-foobar
$ python3 -m venv ~/.virtualenvs/tap-foobar
$ source ~/.virtualenvs/tap-foobar/bin/activate

Install the package:

$ pip install -e .

And invoke the tap in discovery mode to get the catalog:

$ tap-foobar -c sample_config.json --discover

The output should be a catalog with the single sample stream (from the schemas folder):

{
  "streams": [
    {
      "metadata": [],
      "schema": {
        "additionalProperties": false,
        "properties": {
          "string_field": {
            "type": [
              "null",
              "string"
            ]
          },
          "datetime_field": {
            "type": [
              "null",
              "string"
            ],
            "format": "date-time"
          },
          "double_field": {
            "type": [
              "null",
              "number"
            ]
          },
          "integer_field": {
            "type": [
              "null",
              "integer"
            ]
          }
        },
        "type": [
          "null",
          "object"
        ]
      },
      "stream": "sample_stream",
      "key_properties": [],
      "tap_stream_id": "sample_stream"
    }
  ]
}

If this catalog is saved to a catalog.json file, it can be passed back into the tap in sync mode:

tap-foobar -c sample_config.json --properties catalog.json

Now you build the tap!
