Babelforce

tap-babelforce (airbyte variant)

Global cloud communications platform

The tap-babelforce extractor pulls data from Babelforce that can then be sent to a destination using a loader.

⚠️ Experimental Preview Warning ⚠️

This connector uses tap-airbyte-wrapper to call the underlying Docker container for the source. This means you must have Docker installed and running prior to usage. We also recommend using Meltano version 2.13.0 or later.
For more context on how this Airbyte integration works please checkout out the FAQ in the Meltano Docs.
