These docs aim to cover the entire public surface of the core
dagster APIs, as well as public APIs
from all provided libraries.
Dagster follows SemVer, and is currently pre-1.0. We attempt to isolate breaking changes to the public APIs to minor versions (on a roughly 12-week cadence) and will announce deprecations in Slack and in the release notes to patch versions (on a roughly weekly cadence).
APIs from the core
dagster package, divided roughly by topic:
Solids APIs to define or decorate functions as solids, declare their inputs and outputs, compose solids with each other, as well as the datatypes that solid execution can return or yield.
Pipelines APIs to define pipelines, dependencies and fan-in dependencies between solids, and aliased instances of solids; pipeline modes, resources, loggers, presets, and repositories.
Config The types available to describe config schemas.
Types Primitive types available for the input and output values of solids, and the APIs used to define and test new Dagster types.
Dagster CLI Browse repositories and execute pipelines from the command line
Schedules APIs to define schedules on which pipelines are run, as well as a few built-in defaults.
Partitions APIs to define partitions of the config space over which pipeline runs can be backfilled.
Errors Errors thrown by the Dagster framework.
Execution APIs to execute and test pipelines and individual solids, the execution context available to solids, pipeline configuration, the default system storages used for intermediates, and the default executors available for executing pipelines.
Utilities Miscellaneous helpers used by Dagster that may be useful to users.
Internals Core internal APIs that are important if you are interested in understanding how Dagster works with an eye towards extending it: logging, executors, system storage, the Dagster instance & plugin machinery, storage, schedulers.
Dagster includes a number of non-core libraries that provide integrations and additional functionality:
dagster_airflow) Tools for compiling Dagster pipelines to Airflow DAGs, and for ingesting Airflow DAGs to represent them in Dagster.
dagster_aws) Dagster integrations for working with AWS resources.
dagster_azure) Dagster integrations for working with Microsoft Azure resources.
dagster_cron) Provides a simple scheduler implementation built on system cron.
dagster_gcp) Dagster integrations for working with Google Cloud Platform resources.
dagster_github) Provides a resource for issuing GitHub GraphQL queries and filing GitHub issues from Dagster pipelines.
dagstermill) Wraps Jupyter notebooks as solids for integrated execution within pipeline runs.
dagster_k8s) Provides components for deploying Dagster to Kubernetes, along with an experimental Helm chart.
dagster_pagerduty) Provides an integration for generating PagerDuty events from Dagster solids.
dagster_pandas) Provides support for using pandas DataFrames in Dagster and utilities for performing data validation.
dagster_papertrail) Provides support for sending Dagster logs to Papertrail.
dagster_postgres) Includes implementations of run and event log storage built on Postgres.
dagster_prometheus) Provides support for sending metrics to Prometheus.
dagster_pyspark) Provides an integration with pyspark.
dagster_shell) Provides utilities for issuing shell commands from Dagster pipelines.
dagster_slack) Provides a simple integration with Slack.
dagster_snowflake) Provides a resource for querying Snowflake from Dagster.
dagster_spark) Provides an integration for working with Spark in Dagster.
SSH / SFTP (
dagster_ssh) Provides an integration for running commands over SSH and retrieving / posting files via SFTP.
dagster_twilio) Provides a resource for posting SMS messages from solids via Twilio.
