We're looking for a GUI based execution scheduler/planner (or whatever it is called) to run various daily scripts and applications with dependencies. We'd like it to run on a headless Linux distro, and being able to connect to it using a local client or web interface.

What else exists?


There are several workflow planners similar to Airflow. Some are:

  • Spotify's Luigi
  • Mario - A Scala version of Luigi
  • Ruigi - Pipelining software for R

I have used both Luigi and Airflow. Airflow felt really nice, especially with nice, polished UI and the task history features.

Below is a screen shot of an example of a successfully run Airflow pipeline: enter image description here

  • @VigneshKalai I'm sorry, I am not well versed with Airflow. We use Luigi in our architecture. I used Airflow just for experimentation.
