Trawler agent can currently extract metadata from relational databases. Support for additional systems will come in the near future.
To get started with configuring
docker, check out the Getting
Started guide. You can also install the agent via
pip install trawler-python
The agent's tasks can either be configured directly using the command line or from a supplied YAML file.
To run a single task from a configuration file,
trawler run --now example.yml
This mode may also be useful if you want to use your own job scheduler. To make life easy, the agent comes with a very simple scheduler which uses the Python schedule package. To run the agent in daemon mode using any supplied job schedules:
trawler run example.yml
