Apache Nifi Vs(?) Apache Airflow

Apache Nifi Vs(?) Apache Airflow

Contributor

Hi! I've using NiFi for around a year, every day I like it more, very flexible, processors for every need, have some nice reusable templates, etc. So, here goes the question, why there is so more hype around Airflow? I didn't have a deep dive on the platform, watched some tutorials for ETL tasks, and still don't feel it as friendly as NiFi for the same tasks.

I started to think, why do everyone defaults to Airfow and don't even try NiFi? should I be testing Airflow to do same tasks?

Both seem to have a nice user base (it's a strange metric, but looking on linkedin for both platfoms Airflow gives me double the results 4k vs 2k).

Meybe the NiFi support forum on cloudera is somehow biased, but I love to read some opinions.

Thanks!
