Subject Development flow for custom hook & operator (MongoDB)
Date Mon, 07 Aug 2017 08:18:13 GMT
Dear all,
I am not super experienced with python, please bear with me! Since I was not able to find
an existing MongoDB-Hook and Operator for airflow I decided to take things into my own hand.
I found out that I need to define a Hook which inherits from the BaseHook and implements some
functions. Then I would create an operator that uses this hook within a DAG and provide the
db, collection and query to it in order to get the results back in my DAG.

When I put my custom hook into the "/home/airflow/airflow/plugins" folder the operator is
not able to recognize the MongoDbHook-Class, also not when I put it into the “/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/airflow/hooks”
folder and restart all three airflow components.

I found this unanswered question, which is directly related to my question:!msg/airbnb_airflow/O_FLCzWaZf8/qYuj0GzpDAAJ

My questions:
(1) How does the development flow look like when developing a custom hook?
(2) Where do I put what in order for airflow to find it?
(3) Is the MongoDB-Hook planned for the future? If so, can you estimate when?
