Thoughts on the Frictionless Standard

Tue Mar 28 2023

So far I’ve enjoyed a lot playing with Frictionless and learning more about the internal design and specs.



Overall I think Frictionless is right in many abstractions and would like to continue using and learning about it.

PS: The situation reminds me of Data Engineering a while back. We had the Singer Specs and people started to build tooling/connectors around it. Over time it got a lot of traction and larger products like Meltano started to spawn around it. Nowadays, thanks to the specs you have a wide variety of ways to “use” these specs (e.g: Alto). All of this to say that, from my point of view, the missing part on Frictionless now is the integration with the broader data ecosystem. The specs are there and are very helpful, we need more tooling/bridges for people to use it.
