Flytekit is comprised of a handful of different logical components, each discusssed in greater detail below:

  • Models Files - These are almost Protobuf generated files.

  • Authoring - This provides the core Flyte authoring experiences, allowing users to write tasks, workflows, and launch plans.

  • Control Plane - The code here allows users to interact with the control plane through Python objects.

  • Execution - A small shim layer basically that handles interaction with the Flyte ecosystem at execution time.

  • CLIs and Clients - Command line tools users may interact with, and the control plane client the CLIs call.
