Release Release activity Latest release Docker pulls Discourse posts License


As of January 8, 2024, Snowplow is introducing the Snowplow Limited Use License Agreement, and we will be releasing new versions of our core behavioral data pipeline technology under this license.

Our mission to empower everyone to own their first-party customer behavioral data remains the same. We value all of our users and remain dedicated to helping our community use Snowplow in the optimal capacity that fits their business goals and needs.

We reflect on our Snowplow origins and provide more information about these changes in our blog post here β†’ https://eu1.hubs.ly/H06QJZw0


Overview

Snowplow is a developer-first engine for collecting behavioral data. In short, it allows you to:

Thousands of organizations around the world generate, enhance, and model behavioral data with Snowplow to fuel advanced analytics, AI/ML initiatives, or composable CDPs.

Why Snowplow?

  • πŸ”οΈ Rock solid architecture capable of processing billions of events per day.
  • πŸ› οΈ Over 20 SDKs to collect data from web, mobile, server-side, and other sources.
  • βœ… A unique approach based on schemas and validation ensures your data is as clean as possible.
  • πŸͺ„ Over 15 enrichments to get the most out of your data.
  • 🏭 Send data to popular warehouses and streams β€” Snowplow fits nicely within the Modern Data Stack.

➑ Where to start? ⬅️

Snowplow Community Edition Snowplow Behavioral Data Platform
Community Edition equips you with everything you need to start creating behavioral data in a high-fidelity, machine-readable way. Head over to the Quick Start Guide to set things up. Looking for an enterprise solution with a console, APIs, data governance, workflow tooling? The Behavioral Data Platform is our managed service that runs in your AWS, Azure or GCP cloud. Book a demo.

The documentation is a great place to learn more, especially:

  • Tracking design β€” discover how to approach creating your data the Snowplow way.
  • Pipelines β€” understand what’s under the hood of Snowplow.

Would rather dive into the code? Then you are already in the right place!


Snowplow technology 101

Snowplow architecture

The repository structure follows the conceptual architecture of Snowplow, which consists of six loosely-coupled sub-systems connected by five standardized data protocols/formats.

To briefly explain these six sub-systems:

  • Trackers fire Snowplow events. Currently we have 15 trackers, covering web, mobile, desktop, server and IoT
  • Collector receives Snowplow events from trackers. Currently we have one official collector implementation with different sinks: Amazon Kinesis, Google PubSub, Amazon SQS, Apache Kafka and NSQ
  • Enrich cleans up the raw Snowplow events, enriches them and puts them into storage. Currently we have several implementations, built for different environments (GCP, AWS, Apache Kafka) and one core library
  • Storage is where the Snowplow events live. Currently we store the Snowplow events in a flat file structure on S3, and in the Redshift, Postgres, Snowflake and BigQuery databases
  • Data modeling is where event-level data is joined with other data sets and aggregated into smaller data sets, and business logic is applied. This produces a clean set of tables which make it easier to perform analysis on the data. We officially support data models for Redshift, Snowflake and BigQuery.
  • Analytics are performed on the Snowplow events or on the aggregate tables.

For more information on the current Snowplow architecture, please see the Technical architecture.


About this repository

This repository is an umbrella repository for all loosely-coupled Snowplow components and is updated on each component release.

Since June 2020, all components have been extracted into their dedicated repositories (more info here) and this repository serves as an entry point for Snowplow users and as a historical artifact.

Components that have been extracted to their own repository are still here as git submodules.

Community

We want to make it super easy for Snowplow users and contributors to talk to us and connect with one another, to share ideas, solve problems and help make Snowplow awesome. Join the conversation:

  • Meetups. Don’t miss your chance to talk to us in person. We are often on the move with meetups in Amsterdam, Berlin, Boston, London, and more.
  • Discourse. Our forum for all Snowplow users: engineers setting up Snowplow, data modelers structuring the data, and data consumers building insights. You can find guides, recipes, questions and answers from Snowplow users and the Snowplow team. All questions and contributions are welcome!
  • Twitter. Follow @Snowplow for official news and @SnowplowLabs for engineering-heavy conversations and release announcements.
  • GitHub. If you spot a bug, please raise an issue in the GitHub repository of the component in question. Likewise, if you have developed a cool new feature or an improvement, please open a pull request, we’ll be glad to integrate it in the codebase! For brainstorming a potential new feature, Discourse is the best place to start.
  • Email. If you want to talk to Snowplow directly, email is the easiest way. Get in touch at [email protected].
