Install Airflow in your local Macbook

****************************** Step 1 *****************************

Create a new airflow directory anywhere in your laptop

(base) saurabhkumar@Saurabhs-MacBook-Pro spark-3.1.1-bin-hadoop2.7 % cd ~/Documents

(base) saurabhkumar@Saurabhs-MacBook-Pro Documents % mkdir airflow-tutorial

(base) saurabhkumar@Saurabhs-MacBook-Pro Documents % cd airflow-tutorial


************************** Step 2 *******************************

Create a python virtual env

(base) saurabhkumar@Saurabhs-MacBook-Pro airflow-tutorial % conda create –name airflow-tutorial1 python=3.7

Collecting package metadata (current_repodata.json): done


************************* Step 3 **************************

Activate python virtual env

(base) saurabhkumar@Saurabhs-MacBook-Pro airflow-tutorial % conda activate airflow-tutorial1

(airflow-tutorial1) saurabhkumar@Saurabhs-MacBook-Pro airflow-tutorial % pwd



*********************** Step 4 *****************************

export the absolute path

(airflow-tutorial1) saurabhkumar@Saurabhs-MacBook-Pro airflow-tutorial % export AIRFLOW_HOME=/Users/saurabhkumar/Documents/airflow-tutorial


************************* Step 5 *****************************

Now install airflow 1.10.10
