Hi Chris,

Thank you for sharing your experience using Thrift with NiFi, and please accept my apologies for this delayed response. 

Writing a new processor is also what I'm now considering to do. The Maven archetype will be a good start.

Thanks again,

Hi Marcio,

I played around with this a bit and eventually needed to build a custom processor that essentially used thrift as a dependancy. Originally I tried it through ExecuteScript but it took me more time than just writing a new processor. 
There is a really good example of doing this here: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NIFI/Maven+Projects+for+Extensions#MavenProjectsforExtensions-MavenProcessorArchetype using the maven archtype.
