Existing Meltano Project

If you already have a Meltano project you can go straight to the onboarding guide to configure your GitHub repository with Meltano Cloud.

New to Meltano

Meltano Cloud connects to an existing Meltano project in your GitHub repository, so if you don't yet have a Meltano repository set up you can do the following:

  1. Create a GitHub repo

  2. Clone the repo locally

  3. Initialize Your Meltano Project

    Using the init command you can create the scaffolding for your project, just choose a name:

    meltano init <INSERT_YOUR_PROJECT_NAME>
  4. Add Sample Plugins and Schedules

    The following configuration snippet can be added to your meltano.yml file located in your new project directory. The configuration includes a sample extractor and loader with an associated job and schedule:

    - name: tap-smoke-test
    variant: meltano
    pip_url: git+
    - stream_name: animals
    - name: target-jsonl
    variant: andyh1203
    pip_url: target-jsonl
    - name: sample_job
    - tap-smoke-test target-jsonl
    - name: sample_schedule
    interval: 0 0 * * *
    job: sample_job
  5. Lock your new plugins and commit the changes

    meltano lock --update --all

    Commit your changes back to the GitHub repository.

  1. Next follow the Onboarding Guide to configure your GitHub repository with Meltano Cloud.

Once your Meltano Cloud project is set up you can explore the Meltano Core getting started guide to learn how to customize your project.
