About Apache StreamPipes

Apache StreamPipes (incubating) enables flexible modeling of stream processing pipelines by providing a graphical modeling editor on top of existing stream processing frameworks.

It empowers non-technical users to quickly define and execute processing pipelines based on an easily extensible toolbox of data sources, data processors and data sinks. StreamPipes has an exchangeable runtime execution layer and executes pipelines using one of the provided wrappers, e.g., standalone or distributed in Apache Flink.

Pipeline elements in StreamPipes can be installed at runtime - the built-in SDK allows to easily implement new pipeline elements according to your needs. Pipeline elements are standalone microservices that can run anywhere - centrally on your server, in a large-scale cluster or close at the edge.

Use Cases

StreamPipes allows you to connect IoT data sources using the SDK or the built-in graphical tool StreamPipes Connect.

The extensible toolbox of data processors and sinks supports use cases such as

  • Continuously store IoT data streams to third party systems (e.g., databases)
  • Filter measurements on streams (e.g., based on thresholds or value ranges)
  • Harmonize data by using data processors for transformations (e.g., by converting measurement units and data types or by aggregating measurements)
  • Detect situations that should be avoided (e.g., patterns based on time windows)
  • Wrap Machine Learning models into data processors to perform classifications or predictions on sensor and image data
  • Visualize real-time data from sensors and machines using the built-in Live Dashboard


The quickest way to run StreamPipes including the latest extensions (adapters, pipeline elements) is by using our Docker-based installation & operation options, namely:

NOTE: StreamPipes CLI & k8s are highly recommended for developers or operators. Standard users should stick to StreamPipes Compose.

Please follow the instructions provided in the corresponding README.md to get started.

For a more in-depth manual, read the installation guide.

Building StreamPipes

To properly build the StreamPipes core, the following tools should be installed:


  • Java 11 JDK (minimum)
  • Maven (tested with 3.8)
  • NodeJS + NPM (tested with v12+/ v6+)
  • Docker + Docker-Compose


To build the core project, do the following:

    mvn clean package

To build the ui, switch to the ui folder and perform the following steps:

    npm install
    # for NPM > v7, run npm install --legacy-peer-deps
    npm run build


To start StreamPipes, run docker-compose up --build -d from the root directory.

You can also use the installer or CLI as described in the Installation section.

Pipeline Elements

StreamPipes includes a repository of extensions for

  • Connect adapters for a variety of IoT data sources as well as
  • Data Processors and Data Sinks as ready-to-use pipeline elements.

A description of the standard elements can be found in streampipes-extensions.

Extending StreamPipes

You can easily add your own data streams, processors or sinks. A Java-based SDK and several run-time wrappers for popular streaming frameworks such as Apache Flink and Apache Kafka Streams (and also plain Java programs) can be used to integrate your existing processing logic into StreamPipes. Pipeline elements are packaged as Docker images and can be installed at runtime, whenever your requirements change.
