a great article by our friends at Preset comparing Airbyte to Meltano. In the end, the Preset team ended up using Airbyte for its ease of use and containerized architecture.

There are a few things I'd add: 1. We will be working very soon on a CLI, and we do ambition to offer the best declarative interface too. 2. Airbyte only started less than 9 months ago (we started on 07/20/20). So both projects' velocity are not comparable. I would be interested to see the same comparison at the end of this year 🙂!
