Singer is sponsored by Stitch, a fully-managed data pipeline. With Stitch you can run Singer taps on your schedule, stream the data to your warehouse, and enjoy automated monitoring and alerting.
Singer powers data extraction and consolidation for all of your organization’s tools: advertising platforms, web analytics, payment processors, email service providers, marketing automation, databases, and more.See It in Action
It describes how data extraction scripts—called “taps” —and data loading scripts—called “targets”— should communicate, allowing them to be used in any combination to move data from any source to any destination. Send data between databases, web APIs, files, queues, and just about anything else you can think of.
For example, these two simple commands pull currency exchange rate data from Fixer.io into a CSV file:
› pip install target-csv tap-fixerio
› tap-fixerio | target-csv
INFO Replicating the latest exchange rate data from fixer.io
INFO Tap exiting normally
› cat exchange_rate.csv
Taps extract data from any source and write it to a standard stream in a JSON-based format.
Targets consume data from taps and do something with it, like load it into a file, API or database.
