Cascalog for the Impatient

Welcome to Cascalog for the Impatient, a series of blog posts and Cascalog code examples to get you started. Quickly. Like, yesterday.

Use this tutorial in conjunction with Cascading for the Impatient.

Part 1

  • Implements simplest Cascalog query possible
  • Copies each TSV line from source to sink
  • Roughly, in about a dozen lines of code

Part 2

  • Implements a simple example of WordCount
  • Uses a regex to split the input text lines into a Tuple stream of tokens
  • Uses a built-in Cascalog operator
  • Introduction to logic programming

Part 3

  • Uses a Clojure function to scrub the token stream
  • Discusses when to use standard Operations vs. creating custom ones

Part 4

  • Shows how to join sources together
  • Filters a list of stop words out of the token stream
  • Uses a Predicate Macro

Part 5

  • Calculates TF-IDF by abstracting the problem into sub-queries
  • Composing the results from these sub-queries into the TF-IDF formula
  • Uses a special query executor for caching query result in memory

Part 6

  • Includes unit tests in the build
  • Use checkpoints for better performance
  • Shows how to use other TDD features: assertions, traps


Part 6

  • Shows how to use other TDD features: debug
