Subject Re: Installation of Airflow
Date Fri, 26 Jan 2018 15:56:22 GMT
Hi Bolke,
Thanks for the comments, yes we do the same currently. We install system wide and run the
app. as local user. The main problem I am having in this model is that when I install the
app. system wide, the python modules are having dependency with system libraries and I don’t
want to upgrade/downgrade the system libraries because a python module might not like the
version of system library we have on the system. I am lookin for ways to workaround this.

Installation under a different user works fine in a virtualenv. You can also install system
wide and run as normal user (that is how we run it currently).

Did you guys ever figure out the following or your suggestions would be much appreciated.

1.  Installing Airflow application without ‘root’ user. If using root user, not to use
system libraries for all the required python modules instead redirecting to a different location.
2.  Installing Airflow using a local user or having an Airflow package itself with all the
installation and all I have to run is a rpm or some install file.
The above should help us to get faster when installing workers across our environment.
