# Sources (Extractors)

Meltano lets you easily extract data out of arbitrary data sources (databases, SaaS APIs, and file formats) using Singer taps, which take the role of your project's extractor plugins.

Extractors for the following sources are currently discoverable and supported out of the box:

To learn more about extracting and loading data using Meltano, refer to the Data Integration (EL) guide.

Don't see your data source listed here?

If a Singer tap for your source already exists, it can easily be added to your project as a custom extractor. If not, you can learn how to create your own from scratch.

Once you've got the new extractor working in your project, please consider contributing its definition to the index of discoverable plugins so that it can be added to this page!
