Subject [jira] [Created] (AIRFLOW-833) Sub-command to generate the default config
Date Thu, 02 Feb 2017 20:12:51 GMT
George Sakkis created AIRFLOW-833:

             Summary: Sub-command to generate the default config
                 Key: AIRFLOW-833
             Project: Apache Airflow
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: cli
            Reporter: George Sakkis
            Assignee: George Sakkis

1. Currently airflow autogenerates a default {{$AIRFLOW_HOME/airflow.cfg}} as soon as any
command is issued or even when running {{import airflow}} from python, which IMO is rather
intrusive (even more so when AIRFLOW_HOME defaults to the user's home directory).
2. Moreover, once the file is created it is not trivial to generate a default config again;
one has to either move the existing one to another location or change (at least temporarily)

Both issues can be addressed with the extension of the CLI with a subcommand to generate the
default config explicitly at will instead of implicitly at import time.
