Subject [jira] [Commented] (BEAM-1754) Will Dataflow ever support Node.js with an SDK similar to Java or Python?
Date Mon, 20 Mar 2017 22:38:41 GMT


Davor Bonaci commented on BEAM-1754:

It is hard to say whether there'll be such an SDK/DSL in Beam and/or be supported for execution
by a particular Beam runner.

It is certainly within Beam's scope and vision to allow for multiple SDKs/DSLs, including
Node.js. If someone wants to contribute it and a Beam committer is willing to support it,
it is certainly within the realm of possibility. If/when that might happen, I cannot speculate.

However, I have to admit that for most Node.js developers who have little background on typed
languages and are used to get up to speed with frameworks incredibly fast, learning Dataflow
might take some learning curve that they/we're not used to. So, I wonder if at any point in
time Dataflow will provide a Node.js SDK. Maybe this is out of the question, but I wanted
to run it by the team as it would be awesome to have something along these lines!
