matatika (matatika variant)

A simple UI and scheduler for Meltano projects

The matatika utility is a Meltano utility extension providing a simplified community version of Matatika - a modern data platform for analytics users. This tool is designed to provide a complete and simple UI to run your Meltano project with, locally or self-hosted.

WARNING: This extension is currently in beta - if you run into any problems, join the Matatika Slack community and ask for help in the #troubleshooting channel.

EDK Based Plugin

This utility is based on the Meltano Extension Developer Kit (EDK) which is the preferred way to build and add non-Singer plugins to Meltano Hub. For more information about the EDK, please read this section of the Meltano docs. If you have any feedback or suggestions, add them to the EDK repo.

Getting Started


If you haven't already, follow the initial steps of the Getting Started guide:

  1. Install Meltano
  2. Create your Meltano project

Installation and configuration

  1. Add the matatika utility to your project using
    meltano add
  2. meltano add utility matatika
  3. Configure the matatika settings using
    meltano config
  4. meltano config matatika set --interactive

Next steps

To start the Matatika Lab with your Meltano project, run:

meltano invoke matatika lab

If this is first time this command has been run, container images will be pulled from Docker Hub - be aware that this may take a couple of minutes, depending on the speed of your internet connection. Once the images exist on the host machine, start-up should take no longer than 30s.

By default, a tab in your default browser will be opened to the Lab automatically at https://localhost:3443.
