Build connectors in less than 2 hours

The open-source Connector Development Kit (CDK) removes 75% of the code needed to build a new connector.

The Airbyte CDK takes care of
all non-novel code

CDK automates all the non-specific code around connectors

Our open-source Connector Development Kit ships with the following features:

  • A Python framework for writing source connectors
  • A generic implementation for rapidly developing connectors for HTTP APIs, databases, and any type of connectors
  • A test suite to run against all your connectors
  • A code generator to bootstrap development and package your connector

In the end, the CDK enables you to build robust, full-featured connectors within 2 hours, whereas it was taking you 2 days before.

Continuously get new features by upgrading to the latest version of the CDK.

What connector builders say!​

We built a Smartsheets python source connector using Airbyte's CDK. We were able to implement and deploy this connector very quickly thanks to help from Airbyte's team and the CDK's ease of use - the first of many!

I used the Airbyte CDK to write 2 connectors. The experience was amazing, the setup was pretty straightforward, with just a few simple additional steps and in almost no time I was able to develop a new connector and get it running.
