Github user alopresto commented on the issue:
I don't think that's something we should do at this time. The NiFi build is
already long enough (10 - 20 minutes on commodity hardware depending on
multithreading, tests, and contrib-check) and I don't think many people need
this functionality, much less in multiple languages, and I don't know how we
would determine the default languages -- maybe just Java to start as that's
what the codebase is written in?
If you want to submit a PR for a custom profile that builds the API
clients, I wouldn't object to that as long as it was disabled by default. Not
sure what others' feelings are.
