Has anyone managed to get GeoKettle or Spatial extension for Talend running on MacOS Sierra? If so, how did you do it?

These packages have not been updated since 2015 and Apple has more or less discontinued support for Java in Sierra. I have installed both Oracles and Apples versions of Java, but to no avail.

I am looking for a spatial ETL tool (extract, transform, load) that is up to date and won´t break the bank, or my good mood. Most of what we need it for is pretty simple stuff like renaming, moving around and processing data in the tables and so on. We are designers and not software engineers, so writing our own scripts is to time consuming.

  • Look into GDAL, it might do what you need – Matt Apr 4 '17 at 10:02
  • If not likely to produce opinions (like what qualifies as up to date) then this also appears to be seeking input about multiple issues. – PolyGeo Apr 4 '17 at 12:19

Yes, HALE is in active development. The latest release is just 2 months old at the time of writing. So that would quality as "up to date" in my book.
