The target-jsonl Singer target sends data into the JSONL file after it was pulled from a source using a Singer tap.

Standalone usage

Install the package using pip:

pip install target-jsonl

For additional instructions, refer to the README in the repository.

Usage with Meltano

Install Meltano, create your Meltano project, and add the target to your project as a loader:

meltano add loader target-jsonl

For additional instructions, refer to the Meltano-specific documentation for target-jsonl.




  • Default: output

Sets the destination path the JSONL files are written to, relative to the project root. The directory needs to exist already, it will not be created automatically. To write JSONL files to the project root, set an empty string ("").

Include timestamp in file names (do_timestamp_file)

  • Default: false

Specifies if the files should get timestamped
