omniduct provides uniform interfaces for connecting to and extracting data from a wide variety of (potentially remote) data stores (including HDFS, Hive, Presto, MySQL, etc).

It provides:

  • A generic plugin-based programmatic API to access data in a consistent manner across different services (see supported protocols).
  • A framework for lazily connecting to data sources and maintaining these connections during the entire lifetime of the relevant Python session.
  • Automatic port forwarding of remote services over SSH where connections cannot be made directly.
  • Convenient IPython magic functions for interfacing with data providers from within IPython and Jupyter Notebook sessions.
  • Utility classes and methods to assist in maintaining registries of useful services.
