Give your data team magical powers

Integrate and synchronize data from 3rd party sources

Build real-time and batch pipelines to transform data using Python, SQL, and R

Run, monitor, and orchestrate thousands of pipelines without losing sleep

Have you met anyone who said they loved developing in Airflow?
Thatโ€™s why we designed an easy developer experience that youโ€™ll enjoy.

Easy developer experience
Start developing locally with a single command or launch a dev environment in your cloud using Terraform.

Language of choice
Write code in Python, SQL, or R in the same data pipeline for ultimate flexibility.

Engineering best practices built-in
Each step in your pipeline is a standalone file containing modular code thatโ€™s reusable and testable with data validations. No more DAGs with spaghetti code.


2๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿ”ฎ


Stop wasting time waiting around for your DAGs to finish testing.
Get instant feedback from your code each time you run it.

Interactive code
Immediately see results from your codeโ€™s output with an interactive notebook UI.

Data is a first-class citizen
Each block of code in your pipeline produces data that can be versioned, partitioned, and cataloged for future use.

Collaborate on cloud
Develop collaboratively on cloud resources, version control with Git, and test pipelines without waiting for an available shared staging environment.

Donโ€™t have a large team dedicated to Airflow?
Mage makes it easy for a single developer or small team to scale up and manage thousands of pipelines.

Fast deploy
Deploy Mage to AWS, GCP, or Azure with only 2 commands using maintained Terraform templates.

Scaling made simple
Transform very large datasets directly in your data warehouse or through a native integration with Spark.

Operationalize your pipelines with built-in monitoring, alerting, and observability through an intuitive UI.

๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Install

The recommended way to install the latest version of Mage is through Docker with the following command:

docker pull mageai/mageai:latest

You can also install Mage using pip or conda, though this may cause dependency issues without the proper environment.

pip install mage-ai
conda install -c conda-forge mage-ai

๐Ÿ”๏ธ Core design principles

Every user experience and technical design decision adheres to these principles.

๐Ÿ’ป Easy developer experience Open-source engine that comes with a custom notebook UI for building data pipelines.
๐Ÿšข Engineering best practices built-in Build and deploy data pipelines using modular code. No more writing throwaway code or trying to turn notebooks into scripts.
๐Ÿ’ณ Data is a first-class citizen Designed from the ground up specifically for running data-intensive workflows.
๐Ÿช Scaling is made simple Analyze and process large data quickly for rapid iteration.

๐Ÿ›ธ Core abstractions

These are the fundamental concepts that Mage uses to operate.

Project Like a repository on GitHub; this is where you write all your code.
Pipeline Contains references to all the blocks of code you want to run, charts for visualizing data, and organizes the dependency between each block of code.
Block A file with code that can be executed independently or within a pipeline.
Data product Every block produces data after it's been executed. These are called data products in Mage.
Trigger A set of instructions that determine when or how a pipeline should run.
Run Stores information about when it was started, its status, when it was completed, any runtime variables used in the execution of the pipeline or block, etc.
