Adaptors overview

The fundamental building block of a data-flo is an adaptor.

An adaptor is a function that performs a specific task, e.g. combining separate data or splitting a text field.

There are three categories of adaptor:

  1. ****Import: to bring data in to Data-flo from external data sources

  2. Transformation: to perform all necessary manipulations on the data

  3. ****Export: to make data available outside of Data-flo

Adaptors are connected to one another to create a data-flo.

A complete data-flo generally includes all three categories of adaptors.

In the Data-flo canvas, an adaptor is represented by a card showing all the adaptor's arguments****
