AW Datapipe

Gem Version Build Status

AW Datapipe is an unofficial domain specific ruby wrapper for the AWS SDK Data Pipeline API.

The primary goal is to support ruby scripts for creating and updating pipeline definitions.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'aw_datapipe'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install aw_datapipe


Configure credentials for AWS SDK.

export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=AKIA****************
export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=********************************

Use a ruby console (e.g. irb) to download a pipeline definition as ruby instead of JSON.

require 'aw_datapipe'
pipelines =
pipelines.download_definition 'df-***************', 'tmp/pipeline-definition.rb'

The generated script can be checked into version control, modified and executed to update the pipeline definition.

bundle exec ruby tmp/pipeline-definition.rb


A live AWS account with a sample pipeline is required to run the remote tests.

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install.
