NAME

Datahub::Factory - A conveyor belt which transports data from a data source to a data sink.

SYNOPSIS

dhconveyor command OPTIONS

DESCRIPTION

Datahub::Factory is a command line conveyor belt which automates three tasks:

Data is fetched automatically from a local or remote data source.
Data is converted to an exchange format.
The output is pushed to a data sink.

Datahub::Factory fetches data from several sources as specified by the Importer settings, executes a Catmandu::Fix and sends it to a data sink, set via an Exporter. Several importer and exporter modules are provided, but developers can extend the functionality with their own modules.

Datahub::Factory contains Log4perl support.

CONFIGURATION

Command line options

All commands share the following switches:

--log_level

Set the log_level. Takes a numeric parameter. Supported levels are: 1 (WARN), 2 (INFO), 3 (DEBUG). WARN (1) is the default.

--log_output

Selects an output for the log messages. By default, it will send them to STDERR (pass STDERR as parameter), but STDOUT (STDOUT) and a log file.

--verbose

Set verbosity. Invoking the command with the --verbose, -v flag will render verbose output to the terminal.

COMMANDS

help COMMAND

Documentation about command line options.

transport OPTIONS

Fetch data from a local or remote source, convert it to an exchange format and export the data.

transport OPTIONS

Fetch data from a local source, and push it to an enterprise search engine via a bulk API.

API

Datahub::Factory uses a plugin-based architecture, making it easy to extend with new functionality.

New commands can be added by creating a Perl module that contains a `command_name.pm` file in the `lib/Datahub/Factory/Command` path. Datahub::Factory uses the Datahub::Factory::Command namespace and leverages App::Cmd internally.

New Datahub::Factory::Importer, Datahub::Factory::Exporter and Datahub::Factory::Fixer plugins can be added in the same way.
