Kestra, Open Source Declarative Data Orchestration | Kestra
Use declarative language to build simpler, faster, scalable and flexible data pipelines


One of Kestra's defining features lies in its user-friendly design. It allows developers to begin building business use cases directly in a browser without any installation required. On top of that, its simple learning curve and descriptive language make it easy to train new staff members quickly. Kestra supports any kind of workflow, starting from basic processes to more complex systems with branching, parallel tasks, dynamic tasks, and flow dependencies.

Perhaps one of the most notable aspects about Kestra is that it doesn't require extensive developer knowledge to create a new flow. The workflows are described in simple language defined in YAML format making it accessible even for non-developers. This makes Kestra an ideal option for businesses seeking a comprehensive but user-friendly tool for their data orchestration needs.

With 3655 GitHub stars and the latest commit on 2023-07-31 the project looks healthy.
